where to put it?

I am sure that if you are at all like me, you are constantly trying to find new ways to store your yarn. There are some things that I wish I could do {like this and this}, but since I do not have unlimited money and space, that is not possible. I am sure that many of us have that dilemma. So, to get some ideas, I headed to Pinterest {where else?}. There are some great ideas out there!

This is a great solution for little odds and ends. Maybe a jar with a larger mouth so that I could actually get the yarn out, but still a good idea.

A jar like this would be good. And is that a tooth brush holder for the needles? That is a fantastic idea!

A magazine rack, I think. This would be good for yarn that you are planning on using soon, maybe even to store current projects.

I love suitcases, especially old ones. This is a fantastic solution since it could function as storage, decoration, footrest, and traveling case all in one!

Yet another great way to use an old suitcase.

This clear plastic garbage can {or something like that} removes the need for a bigger jar opening. I like that all of the yarn is visible.

If you have an empty shelf this would be a great way to use it!

Right now my yarn is in baskets so that I can see most of it all at once. However, I have run out of baskets and I have a little in shoeboxes. These look like great ways to store yarn, though. Maybe someday...

How do you store your yarn?

  1. Eee! These are all so cute! But actually, I'm *trying* really hard to minimize the yarn I have. I know, I know. *sigh*

    But... for what I do have... these would be great ideas to use-- thanks so much for sharing, ducky!
