Trick to keep your yarn from tangling.

Good Morning Crafty Folk,

This morning I have a quick tip for you.

I’ve been knitting a jersey (pullover?) for a while now, and I’ve been working with three different colors in a stripe pattern, but that means I have to keep switching between yarn and it was getting tangled in my box, so lazy me thought up a way to keep them from tangling.
I went out and bought a inexpensive plastic dish 9 inches long by 7 inches wide by 3 inches deep. (23x17x8 cm)

and I had my hubby drill two holes on each end then I put eyelets in it, so the yarn could move through freely.

I put my three different yarns in it and fed each through a hole (the extra hole is for when I’m working with four yarns)

I put the lid on it and started working, and I have to tell you it works fantastically. I have no tangling, my dogs and cats don’t feel the need to attack my yarn and I get to work in peace.

Hope this tip helped you all

Have a great crafting day,

Genevieve
