Yarn Storage Tips

When using yarn from a skein, you mostly use it from the center of the skein. That is the "norm". When you are winding yarn into a ball, use any button (with a shank on it or even a regular button) and tie it to the end of the yarn (that becomes the middle of the ball). By doing this, you will not lose the end of the yarn and you can still pull the yarn from the center. This prevents the ball from rolling all over the place, too.


Also a container I find useful for keeping my yarn in it while crocheting or knitting, is a large (empty) oatmeal container. It is a perfect fit. Happy "yarn" to everyone.
