Before I begin the regularly scheduled blog about being a yarnoholic & how a notebook might help, I would like to show you why there have not been any regularly scheduled blogs for the past three weeks.
In other words, we are a mess. And anything above basic existence is a luxury. In fact, I had to rummage quite a while to find my laptop to post this blog.
But the show must go on, so ever onward to the blog post about using a notebook to organize your yarn.
Why You Need A Notebook
Hi. I’m Laurie and I’m a yarnoholic. I’ve tried to deny it. But then I catch myself smuggling another batch of yarn into the house. So now I am embracing my yarny side. I have yarn pride. I also have an out of control yarn stash.
I need to get all of my yarn and my projects (WIPs — Works In Progress) under control. So I developed some layouts to keep in my notebook that I hope will help.
Keeping Track of My Yarn
One thing I think will be very helpful is the “Location” information. Since I have yarn stashed all over the house, this is a way to quickly locate the yarn I am looking for.

Needles & Hooks
I don’t know about you but I own a bazillion crochet hooks (and if I was a knitter there is no doubt in my mind I would own a bazillion needles 😉)
So here’s a layout that will help me inventory my hooks. Left side of the page is a list of knitting needles—just in case I have a sudden urge to learn how to knit, which could happen!
Thanks for stopping by,
