Three-Day Weekend and Some Slow Knitting

Since it's President's Day tomorrow (and I'm off from work), I plan on visiting another yarn shop in the next county. I heard this LYS is a must see. It's called Uniquities. Unfortunately, they don't have a website. I've been there before, but that was in my crocheting days. Tomorrow, I'm going without blinders on and feel their yarns.

On the knitting front:
I have come to realize that I'm not a fast knitter. I've heard that a lady had made this same shrug in 6 hours! I still have 4 inches of the body to knit (K1,P1) and then I start increasing from 60 to 120 stitches and another 7-1/2 inches of (K2,P2) ribbing.

I have spent too much time on the computer today and not enough time with my sewing and knitting.

I've been going through my yarn stash, organizing and grouping similar yarns together. That's the yarns in my sewing room and closets. I have yet to go through the bins in the basement.

So, this yarn sorting task has led me to ask a question. How do you store your yarns/stash?

Its looking nice! It doesn't matter how fast you knit it, you're allowed to go at your own pace :)
I had lots of fun when it came to sorting and storing my yarn when I moved into my new flat - there are photos here of what I did! It works really well.
