Yarn Journal

Holy moley! Been a long time since I've posted something! Well, I'll try to do better!

I just wanted to share my new Yarn Journal. I found this notebook on clearance at Walmart and had to have it... even though I'm not in school anymore and couldn't think of a use for it. But then I had a light bulb moment (as my friend Barb calls it!) and decided to use it to catalog my yarn. :) (Sorry for the blurry photos, but I think you get the idea!)
