Tuesday’s Tip – Keep the Yarn Label for Reference

Share Button

When I finally complete a project after months of knitting or crocheting, the first thing I usually do is cast on for something new! And let’s face it, we don’t always wait until we finish knitting to get a new project going.

With so many projects going on at once, it’s easy to lose track of which yarn went with which finished object. Try keeping one of the ball bands used for your project, along with a scrap of the yarn. You can write on the back of the label which pattern was used with the yarn and which size you made. The label has valuable information like the care instructions for your project, as well as the dye-lot used. A photo album with pockets is great for storing the labels along with your scrap of yarn!

    For care instructions I have labels that get sewed in along with my “made by” label. If the project is just for you then just sew in the care label.

    I keep all that info on Ravelry.com. The hard part for me is remembering what all the bits and leftovers of yarn are when I’m done with a project. A few yards of random green I’ve found that could work in a new baby hat…was that wool? is it washable? etc.

    I keep my patterns in plastic sheet protector pockets. I always drop a ball band in with the pattern.

    I take a photo of the garment with the ball band alongside.
