Yarns Organizing Idea

Here is one yarn organizing idea for you. I have uploaded this yarn roller idea in a fb group before which received  remarkable feedbacks but have never published it in this blog. Now people are asking again for the same ideas so I thought I will post it here for easy reference for all.  




You need several household items such as:
  1. a plastic basket with holes
  2. yarns in cake shape as above works better
  3. drinking straws
  4. a knitting needle
Here is how:
Slide the needle inside the straw, if more straw is needed to cover the needle cut another  straw. 
Locate the most top hole on one side of the box. Slide the straw covered needle through the hole, string the cakes carefully, pass the needle though the opposite side of the box. 

Now you have it. Turn your work from time to time to avoid tangling. When stringing the cakes make sure you pull the threads all in the same direction toward you. If you prefer you can insert each of  the threads through the holes in the box to separate them.

Get the box from Carrefour outlets or from online store such as Organizeit.
