The Knitted Frau

Adventures in knitting, and other things too.

Slacking with knitting, but rockin’ organization!

So, I’ve been slacking like crazy for the past week on my third pair of tree mittens. But I have been doing something…

Organizing my yarn stash!

I’ve been thinking about how the heck to organize snippets of yarn with its tags for a while. I looked around for ideas and didn’t see anything I thought was good enough. Then one day at school, a kid came in with Pokemon cards and I got to thinking about how I used to have a binder full of them in plastic sleeves and BOOM! What an idea.

So I went out and got a cheap binder, a 10 pack of trading card sleeves for a binder and some index cards (about $6 all together). I had to trim the cards to fit the sleeves, but it worked out great.

For yarns I didn’t have the tags to, I just wrote the yarn info down on the card.

I’m writing down project info for each yarn on the index cards as well so I’ll have a handy-dandy reference guide that’s easy to add to whenever I get a new yarn.

So much better than a box full of tags and scraps! Yippee!

Now I don’t feel so bad about procrastinating…

Have a good week!

  1. Mad organizational skillz! Wow. I tried that once, and it lasted for all of 3 minutes, lol. I am also impressed with all of your beautiful mittens. You must be such a fast knitter.

    • Thank you! We’ll see how long this organized stash lasts. I might lose the drive next time I come home from the yarn store haha. As far as quick knitting goes, I’m blessed with a job that only needs me before and after school, so I have A LOT of time in the afternoons to knit. And I use it!
