I started a habit last Christmas of noting names, year and occasion directly on the pattern. Also i take a pic of everything i knit. That way i know what patterns not to duplicate as gifts.

She said the reason for the yarn tie is so they know which item the instructions belong to if she's knitted several things for them over the years. I think that's very clever!
I do this too and it works really well. I have a recipient who does me one better... she ties those little cards to hangers in her closet and then knows exactly which hanger a garment belongs to. Way more organized than I could ever dream of being!
