I came across a great little tip in the Women’s Weekly Handy Home Tips special issue magazine to keep yarn protected during a project.
Snip a corner off a zip lock bag, place your yarn in the bag and thread it through the snipped corner. So simple right? I thought I’d road test the tip on my latest project.
It worked really well. As I was knitting it got me thinking at how useful this tip would be. If you knitted at home, you already had a stable place you place your yarn (bucket, bag, yarn bowl) and you didn’t have any little helpers (pets, small children) who liked to help you knit / crochet then you wouldn’t really use this tip. If however, you had helpers or you took your projects out on the go with you (I often knit at the pub) then this would be a great way to protect the yarn and stop items getting caught in the ball in your bag.
