Our cat, Tweets is very clever at finding a ball of yarn and can spend late hours unraveling it from one end of our two-story house to another. Bury it under a sofa pillow? She'll dig it out.

Even while I'm using it, making pet carrier "blankies" for pet carriers for our humane society, she loves to snatch it! I finally found the solution.

First off, I give her a small ball of yarn to play with. I upended a plastic waste basket with open slots in the sides and thread the yarn in use though a slot, where I can easily pull it out as I use it.

Tweets is frustrated, but this method works out very well for me. The yarn is hidden and inaccessible to Tweets and I no longer have to chase down and rewind the yarn as I work.
