Yarn organizing tip

Knitters and crocheters, get organized for the new year!

If you need to keep track of your yarn stash, here's a trick I use:

Yarn labeling and organizing

Use an exacto knife to cut angled notches into a strip of cardboard. Leave enough room for whatever sort of labeling you need above each notch.

Yarn labeling and organizing

Wrap a couple of feet of yarn around it and tie off (I prefer this way over creating a swatch).

Then, you can write it all down and stow in a drawer. It'll have everything you need to know when you need to buy that exact yarn again in the future!
