[personal profile] lilliane pointed me to this article featuring clever ways to store yarn. I thought you all might enjoy it as well. Kinda looking at those domed drink cups and sugar holders a little differently now.

Very pretty! Sadly, I don't think I could bring myself to try most of them, because time spent organising yarn is time not spent working with yarn. Also, mostly I have yarn stored in old baskets/suitcases - when I get it down to enough to display, I'm not sure that I'll actually care to display it.

At this point in my life, I have lots of 'scrap' yarn. However, I can see that if I had very pretty yarn, that that might be the case as well! (and Wollmeise is such pretty yarn)

I really like working with scrap yarn -- there is something very freeing about scrumbling it together to see what I end up with.

Mind you, at the moment, I'm using all the tag ends from four long stitch projects to convert two round long stitch projects to two square ones, so I'm not doing anything crochet like with scrap yarn. But I'm having a ball with working out which bit to use next!

I love this article -- thank you! A friend recently gifted me with a gravy boat I don't need, and I think I may try it as a yarn caddy by running the end of the yarn through the spout.

If I can! Right now I don't have a cellphone, and my digital camera is on the blink; it thinks it doesn't need to focus. But hopefully that'll get sorted out soon.

Thank you!

That sounds like a very good use of a gravy boat!

I've already got one for gravy, and this one has a hollow round spout so it's perfect to thread yarn through!
