When I began knitting and starting building my yarn stash, I struggled with finding a way to organize it. I tried everything, sorting by color, sorting by weight, and utilizing the stash section of Ravelry. No matter what I did, everytime I needed a new skein, I ended up digging through my stash, tearing it apart until I found what I needed.
I scoured Pinterest and all corners of the internet looking for what I needed. I discovered the concept of a yarn binder, and was fascinated. This is perfect! Not only can I see the yarn, but I can touch it, see exactly how thick or thin it is, and write notes about it. It is a great resource for knitting for others too! If someone asks for something, I hand them my yarn binder and they can pick exactly what they want.

Naturally, I went to Etsy.
I found a listing for a knitting journal, and I fell in love it. For only $4, I got not only the perfect template for putting together a yarn binder, but I also got knitting project pages, knitting needle inventory, measurements, and more! This is such a great printable template package, and if you are looking to organize your knitting life, I highly recommend. There isn't a thing I would change about it. I had no complaints!
So, without further ado, here is my yarn binder.
That's it! Super easy! Let me know what you think, and how you organize your stash!
