Yardage Meter

Today I'm going to give new meaning to the concept of "organizing my stash". I've bought a lot of yarn on ebay lately which is coming on cones or in extra large skeins. I wanted to wind them into smaller balls for easier knitting, but also wanted to keep track of the yardage.

After scouring the web for an AFFORDABLE yardage meter for weeks, I finally found the perfect one at Nancy's Knit Knacks. I tried it out last night with the yarn on the floor, then the yardage meter on my desk, followed by my yarn winder, and it worked like a charm! I counted and wound 7 skeins in no time. I even got really creative and created my own yarn labels. Now each skein that I wind has a lable with the yarn name/color, content, yardage, care instructions, etc. I did the lables in PowerPower (4 to a page). Send me an email if you'd like a copy of the file.

I'll post a picture of my new and improved stash once I'm done.
