They created yarn pegs, which are ordinary clothes pegs with a colour yarn wrapped round them and all the details of that yarn written onto the peg, like its density.

April also shared her yarn peg collection on TikTok, explaining that she makes a peg for every yarn in her craft supplies. She wrote alongside the video: "Have you made yarn pegs? I really a lot on my yarn peg library!"

Random Olive took to TikTok to show their crochet projects in waiting, in the form of beautifully matched yarn pegs. We love the blue hues in these pegs.
