Knitters and crocheters know that throwing out leftover bits of yarn is crazy - you can always use them for something! Some decorative edging, making little hearts, or tying up packages. But we also know that it's crazy to have a million little balls of leftover yarn laying tangled up in a basket, box, or bag. It makes us crazy when we need to find a color and have to un-knot it from the mass of yarn still in the basket. Those little balls never stay neatly wound!
Well, gather up your tiny bits of yarn because I'm going to show you how to organize them once and for all!
This little tutorial is so simple that it hardly needs written instructions! Just gather up your bits of yarn, wind them around wooden clothespins, and clip the loose end in the mouth of the clothespin.
I like wooden clothespins better than plastic ones because they have a little texture to them, which hold the yarn on the body of the clothespin without slipping off (and I just don't like plastic too much, anyway).
Now you can put your yarn back into its basket, box, or bag without it getting all ratty and tangled. In fact, this idea is so cute you may want to display your favorite yarns in a little ceramic bowl!
