I love my “cubbies” for storing my yarn stash. I love seeing all the colors and thinking about the projects I plan to make. This works great for one skein projects. But I’m finding that I’m now buying project quantities of yarn for projects I don’t plan to knit for months or even a year from now. I wanted a way to keep the yarn together until I’m ready to knit the project.
I realized that those zippered bags that sheet sets come in would be perfect!! Unfortunately I only had one and an appeal to family and friends didn’t result in any more. Thankfully I found some on Amazon. The large ones are fine for my 6+ skein sweater projects. I put a post-it note with the yarn to remind me the planned pattern until I print out the pattern. The smaller ones are good for my 4 skein summer top. I even used one for a three skein shawl project although the bag is too big. I folded the bottom to make it smaller.
As the picture shows, my wall is pretty full of cubbies and plastic project storage bags. I am running out of space so I better get knitting!!
