I was given some yarn in 2 liter soda bottles. The lady had removed the bottom from the bottle, put the skein of yarn into it with the end of yarn through the hole in the top, and Scotch taped the bottom back on. There were eight bottles in a flat used in stores to carry and display the pop. The bottles stand up straight and are easy to untangle yarn.jan072 said:I bought a knitting cylinder of sorts I'm not sure what they call it. I bought mine several yrs. ago @ A.C. Moore, but I know Annies Attic carries them as I believe some other places as well.
Here is how it works, when you knit more then one color each color goes into it's own cylinder, w/hole in the top for yarn to come out, so say you have 2 or 3 it doesn't matter they don't tangle and it's smooth sailing. If you have a problem locating this product get back to me, I'll pull mine out and get you the name. Hang in there help is coming.
