If you’re an avid knitter or crocheter, chances are you’ve run into the classic conundrum: where to stash your yarn collection. Because yarn comes in so many shapes, colors, and sizes, it can be tricky to find a way to organize your yarn collection without it becoming unsightly or taking up too much room. Now that it’s the start of a new year, there’s no better time to get organized once and for all! To add a little inspiration to your day, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite yarn storage ideas from around the web for you to use in your own home!
