Now that it’s a brand-new year, it’s pretty tempting to run out and buy some brand-new yarn, as well. (I mean, when is it NOT a good idea to buy more yarn?) However, it can be hard to justify the purchase when you have to look at your current yarn stash every day—if it’s anything like mine, that means finding yarn in all the closets, tucked into drawers, and displayed “decoratively” in baskets on the table because there’s just nowhere else to put it. (To be fair, I’ve heard Vanna White does this, too.)
Clearly, the thing to do is to get organized first, but it can be so overwhelming to start from scratch—not to mention, building a cabinet or dresser just for yarn is out of the picture for most people. Fortunately, I’ve found a few clever yarn organization ideas on the Internet that could be just the solution you need!
