I am doing something that is might prove to be really scary – I am actually entering my yarn stash in a data base. I am not even halfway through the basket in the living room and I am at 28 skeins. Each skein has its own entry. And yes, I am using a data base. MS Access to be exact. I like Access and I plan to sort the database several different ways. I will curious to see how many of each brand of sock yarn that I own. If you have your sock yarn in a computer program some where, what program do you use? And what fields are in your data base?
I am also thinking of doing this for my books and patterns. Mostly because I can never remember if I already have the pattern.
