Label your WIP’s (works in progress) and never be confused again.

Don’t you hate it when you’re going thru you stash of unfinished projects (or as I like to call them UFO’s – Unfinished objects) and you can’t remember what hook you used?   Or maybe you can’t recall the dye lot.  Whatever it is this is a quick method for labeling your items and never being confused again.  

1.)  Take an index card, fold in 4 parts and cut  (see photos)

2)  Write down information needed to complete project such as hook/needle size, Brand or yarn, color, dye lot or other special instructions on the card.  (see photo) 
3)  Get a piece of yarn (or crochet thread)  about 10 inches long and thread thru a sharp pointed needle 
4)  Sew thru label 
5)  With crochet hook pull yarn thru crochet project. 
6)  Make a knot at the end of your yarn and wrap label thru yarn loop 
Now you’re all done.  No more confusion when you go back to complete your project.  Whether it’s tomorrow or next year.

    I would also suggest writing the name of the pattern and where to find it on the card. I have a blanket that I started a while ago, and I have no idea what pattern I was using. I’m going to wing it and try to figure it out because I really like the pattern!
