Knitting Easy for Travel



This is something I do with my yarn for traveling or at home when I don't want the ball to roll everywhere. I save the powdered cream containers or any container that has an opening in the lid, so I can pull out my yarn from the top of the lid. I crochet in the car or train and it doesn't take up much space and the yarn doesn't tangle. I hope you can picture.

I like using the larger coffee "cans" for this. You can also keep a crochet hook, scissors, stitch holders, and other vital tools that would otherwise tend to get spread around or misplaced while you're working.

Great Idea and I would imagine it's extra helpful when working with several different colors on one project!

great idea, I can definitely picture and this is a great way to keep the yarn from getting dirty as well. Thanks for the tip!
