Question from Kstorer,”Laura and Leslie,
Happy New Year! I am working on “cleaning up” my craft space and have two questions.
The first one, is it okay to store yarn in plastic containers? I always see yarn just sitting open in bins but am concerned that something could spill on it or get dusty. If I put the yarn all in bags, then I have to open the bags to see everything??
The second question, is there a good app or way to keep a needle inventory? This would include a way to know that I have a size 7 circular and am using it on a certain project.
Thanks so much! This info will really help my “cleaning up”.
Leslie is listening to/reading Changes: A Randall Lee Mystery by Charles Colyott.
Laura is listening to the third Charley Davidson series. She has finished the first 4 books in the Rainshadow series by Jayne Castle. She is also reading the Theirs is Not to Reason Why series by Jean Johnson.
