The Battle with the Scrap Yarn

Posted on: September 15, 2010

Yes, this is it.  All of my scrap yarn jumbled together in one humungous pile.  There are partial balls, uncompleted projects and handfuls all thrown in together.  What a mess!  I finally have had enough and decided end this disorganization once and for all.

With all of the patience I could muster, I slowly tackled this mess and rewound balls, pulled apart unfinished pieces and all of the other pieces .  Each color was then wound neatly and set aside carefully.  I was so happy that I had gotten that far until the one question popped into my head – “How are you going to store it?”  Well the good old zip lock bag trick was useless and putting them into an old cookie tin would only end in the same mess.  Then it hit me!  I had the answer all along in my fridge!

Yes, in my fridge.  And here it is –

You can’t see it very well but each cup holds a ball of yarn.   They will now stay separated and neat.  I am so proud of myself.  It has only taken me forever to come up with this idea.

Yes, I am a little slow but at least I come up with something in the end.  Sometimes frustration does have it’s benefits.
