Yarn Pegs

I've finally made a start on something I've been meaning to do for ages!

If you need help coming up with colours schemes for crochet blankets, try having a go at making these easy pretty yarn pegs for Stylecraft Special DK yarn.  Dolly pegs make them look so cute!

Lucy at Attic24 has been using yarn pegs for years - she may even have invented the idea, it was certainly the first place I saw it.  It's such a clever way to play with colours and work out what schemes to use for new blankets and other projects.  However, it was when I read this post from Sam at Betsy Makes, using pretty dolly pegs for her yarn pegs, that I really wanted to give it a go.

Well... it's been two and a half years since I read that post!  I finally bought some dolly pegs in the last few months of last year, and only this weekend did I actually get to work after being inspired anew by this picture on Instagram from colourandcrochet.  So, it's been a long time coming.  Thanks to Lucy, Sam and Clare for the inspiration that finally got me here!

The plan is to have a peg for every colour of the Stylecraft Special DK range.  Then when the need comes to crochet a new blanket (as it does!) it will be easy to decide on a scheme and check how the colours look together, before buying the yarn.

(I do still need to write the colours on the pegs, as that would be helpful!)

Unfortunately I only had 15 colours in my stash (one is not pictured - grey) and I think there are around 80 colours in the Stylecraft Special DK range!  It's a start, though.

A lot of these colours can be seen in my waterlily blanket.

I already feel some colour scheme ideas coming from looking at the pegs I've made so far - it's such a great useful idea!
