    To change to another project, do you have to cut the yarn inside or does it slip out some way?

    Great idea! However I usually use yarn skeins so this is not that practical for me. Those who wind their skeins would find this very handy!

    I love this idea and I’d try it if I could afford it. I chronic pain condition having to chase my skeins all over the living room or needing someone else to retrieve them for me made it hard to work on my projects. My solution was to buy two baskets at the dollar store. The sides are solid and tall enough the skeins can’t flip out, and I can thread the yarn through the handles to keep it from tangling. It works well, but it’s annoying to have to carry something so big while I’m out of the house. These would serve the same purpose and would be much easier to cart around.

    I love the ideas from this site! I love seeing all the different ideas and talent. As far as this article, I’m with Roxann, slurpy cup was the first thing that came to mind. I do carry mine most places, crocheting on lunch at work or on trips, but depending on the project whether it goes. Keep up the good work (and ideas and tips) love it!

    I just buy a slurpy in a plastic cup with a dome lid. After drinking it I wash it out and use it to place my skein of yarn in it.I replace the lid and run the yarn through the hole in the top of the dome.It sits in my cup holder while my husband drives. I sit next to him and crochet away without chasing my yarn. Works great!!

    As usual, a great informative article. As for the expense issue, investing in your tools makes for a more professional product, not to mention relaxing!
