After a person has been hooking for awhile, they accumulate quite a collection of leftover wool strips from all of their projects. It can become overwhelming to deal with these and figure out a good way to keep them organized in such a way that they're easily accessible for future rugs. A fellow rug hooker from Arizona recently shared a great solution on her blog. She gave permission to share it here with our Utah Guild members.
This is a shoe organizer that can be found for $9.97 in the laundry aisle at Walmart. I has twelve different compartments so the wool strips can be sorted by color or size - you could even store small pieces of wool yardage in them. The sides of this container are made of fabric so the wool can breath while it's being stored away and it fits easily under a bed.
Great solution! You can see see more about this on the original blog post at Ticklepie.
