How do you organize your yarn?

I am starting to go through my yarn and I was wondering how everyone else likes to organize their yarn?
I like to keep my brands separate and then I go by color! I also like to keep my more expensive yarns away from my value yarns that way when I go to design a project it's easier to figure out what I need and the cost!

Comment below and let me know how you like to!

  2. We were gifted about 50 pounds of yarn, still in triple bags, most of it. Right now it is in and stacked on a dresser. No sure how we are going to organize it. I believe it is mostly worsted, but there are no labels on most of it. Love Carol

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
