Ok here goes my first guest post. There a numerous ways to store and organize your yarn and Hooks. Today I will show you just a few ideas.
If you have cats or any animal that likes to chase or get into your yarn, a shoe box works great to keep out those pesky pet hairs. They also work great when your crocheting with more than one yarn. As you can see in the Pictures this is a pretty easy project, just save the shoe box from your next shoe purchase, I used a pen to poke holes in the side, so my yarn can come through. I left the holes raw but, if you have gromets those would work nicely to let the yarn slide through easier.
You can decorate your box with scrapbook paper or paint, whatever, Just use your imagination and go crazy.
My Next Item is a reused Frozen Yogurt container, I got the one pictured from http://www.boxingday.etsy.com/ She decorated it and put a gromet in the top so the yarn wouldnt snag on the plastic. These Yarn Barns are made for Smaller skieins of yar. like your cotton yarns or maybe even scrap projects. A Coffee can or the new Plastic coffee containers would work awesome for this too. and they would fit your bigger skeins of yarn.
Ok as far as Storage goes, Mine is not the prettiest or most original. but as alot of you know I gave up my craft room when my brother moved in with me. So all my yarn is stored in plastic dressersin my bedroom, and my yarn overflow is stored in a cardboard box. But it serves its purpose it keeps the yarn nice, it keeps critters and hairs and odors away from the yarn.
