Keep your yarn bands with any half fin­ished balls so that you know what they are. You can ei­ther pin them to the ball or wrap them around with an elas­tic band. If you are sure you’re go­ing to use a hank yarn and you’ve got a spare 15 min­utes, wind it up ei­ther by hand, or by us­ing a yarn swift and ball win­der. When you come to use

it, it’ll al­ready be good to go!

of Ever crawled around un­der the coffee ta­ble look­ing for that slowly un­rav­el­ling ball? Then bag your­self a yarn buddy! This gad­get keeps your yarn spi­ralling ef­fort­lessly – no more tan­gles! Ce­ramic or yarn

bowls make an at­trac­tive op­tion too. Moths can get into just about any con­tainer but we’ve had suc­cess with putting yarn in sand­wich bags in­side air­tight plas­tic con­tain­ers with click lock-lids. Cedar and laven­der con­fuse moths’ sense of smell and stop them lay­ing egs, but won’t kill them. If you keep your yarn un­der a bed check for moths reg­u­larly as they love dark dusty places!
