I will start moving in May and would like to know how to store and protect my finished projects. I currently keep all FOs in a storage basket without a lid. As I mainly make stuffed animals, the projects all have stuffings and are large.
I had no idea about carpet beetles and moths until I saw people desperately asking for help on knitting forums. I am now highly anxious about my work. And my fridge is not big enough to do the freezing. I have no idea whether my apartment is pest-free or not. It seems to be clean, but better safe than sorry.
I would like to know your tips for FOs storage. Also, I would like to know how you store the yarn that you intend to use in the short term. I now put the yarn on the shelf, and it does not seem safe, either.
For the moving and long-term, I plan to use vacuum storage bags. Does this practice harm the stuffed animals? Is it better if I put mothballs in the bags?
To prevent pests, do you recommend a cedar ball or mothball to protect yarn and FOs? Do they work? What other protection methods do you prefer?
I am genuinely freaking out now and appreciate any suggestions.
Thank you so much.
