Summer Spruce-Up

As of January 2020, Hooking With Yarn has moved and has a new name, Rug Hooking Adventures. Same monthly posting, with tips & techniques, Featured Rug of the Month, web specials and more (just no more pesky ads!). Click here to sign up for the new blog. Thanks!

I’m a big believer in having my yarns, fabric and wool out on display, where I can see what I’ve got. I like to organize it by color. When I enter my workroom, I feel like I’m going shopping— what a treat!

If you keep all your stuff in bags and boxes, crammed into closets, chances are the next time you want to start a project, you’ll forget what you’ve got! Even if space is a premium at home, try to find a way to keep your treasures visible. They will inspire you in your creative life.

August is blessedly quiet on the farm. Good time to catch up on chores, then gear up for next month’s shows.

    Thanking for sharing. Your stash of yarns is amazing. I also sort my yarns by color and have them in baskets on shelving. The colors of yarn are spilling out the top of the baskets and I enjoy seeing them.
