When I saw the title of this blog post over on Knits for Life, I internally rolled my eyes. “The world’s best yarn storage idea? Right…”

But after I saw the images … I kind of agree! I have balls and skeins of yarn in random boxes, bags, and drawers all over my house. This yarn storage idea is great because it’s attractive and functional. Storing yarn on a pegboard has some very big plusses: you see every single color of yarn that you own, you get a piece of awesome, ever-changing wall art, and it probably absorbs echo in the room, to boot.

Since you’d probably take off the labels to store the yarn this way, you could create a catalog of your yarns by tying a piece of yarn to the label and storing them in a box.
