This is great to use to hold your yard in an oatmeal box. Now no more knotted yarns while you are crocheting.

Great idea. Another one is to rinse and dry 2 lt. soda bottles. When dried, carefully slice the top off just as it is all one size. In other words, once the curve down to the center is done, cut it. Then, slip in your yarn and thread through the opening, and press the cap "top" back down. If you want, you can use some duct tape in make a "hinge" on the back so it just sits on the top like a lid. Tape the edges with clear strapping tape, as plastic can cut you. Good Luck!! (01/23/2009)

I loved your idea with the oatmeal boxes, but I took it one step further. I have collected about 8 oatmeal boxes. Just to make them prettier, I covered each with contact paper. Then I took industrial strength velcro (it holds better than regular velcro) and put it around the edge where the lid goes on and around the inside of the lid so it holds the box to the lid. This way the lid stays on good, but I can still take it on and off as needed. I made a hole in the center of the bottom of the box for the yarn to come through.

Ok now for the reason for so many boxes. I put one strip of the velcro down the side of each box in such a way that I could join all the boxes together. This way, whenever I'm working on a project that uses more than one color I can join as many boxes together as I need with each color in it's own box. No more tangled skeins as I'm working!
