winter's here... and a question about storage

I swear the next thing I knit will not be from Quince! ;-)

I finished Agnes just before the cold weather really hit. Knit from Quince and Co.'s Puffin (colorway: gingerbread) it's a dense but comfy sweater in a simple, classic design. I should have probably knit down a size, cause this is pretty big on me, but I love wearing it like an oversized sweatshirt, sitting in my kitchen watching the snow come down!


Question for you knitters (and non-knitters, too!) How do you store and organize your finished handknits? Mine are in piles, baskets, drawers, and bins -- all over the place! As I finish more and more big projects and sweaters, I am seeking out some sensible, tidy, and pest-proof storage. Any recommendations for favorite systems, products, or just ideas, please feel free to share. Thanks!

I have a drawer for them but otherwise, they are with the rest of my clothes... This is a very good question though. I'm interested in what others have to say!

I like to use old, clean vintage suitcases to hold all my knits. Suitcases keep the moths out pretty well. But I add a little lavender to keep the knits a bit safer.
