|Does your yarn stash resemble this....|
First on my agenda was finding a new way to store the yarn. Like all art teachers, I seem to always see possibilities in all those recyclables. I don't always know what the possibility is but I stash it away and wait for the moment to arrive. My daughter binged on those biscote for years and I never parted with one of the big square containers. After a few holes punched in the lid for the yarn to thread through, Wa La, yarn storage. Tape on the lid because the kids think they are suppose to remove lids from things. You gotta teach them how to use it correctly, don't assume. Next shown are some artificial creamer containers that a fellow teacher passed on to me at least 7 or 8 years ago. Yeah, they have been sitting in a bag waiting to be discovered for a looonnnnggg time. They work great and the lids screw on so no take needed. They also hold one skein of yarn each so no tangling allowed. Finally, I have purchased a variety of things from the dollar store in those little mesh bags. I think some held river rocks and others little trophies. Pull the yarn through the mesh and then seal them back up again. Individual ball storage. I should have shot one more picture of the nice way they look stored in the messy bin above. That photos is for another time. For now I am totally yarn organized for the next weaving session!
