Do you have any suggestions to keep 3 strands of yarn from twisting when crocheting with 3 strands at a time. I quit it was driving me crazy. Thanks

There are little gadgets you can put on your tension finger that uncurls the twists just before crocheting, but you are just going to have to stop every so often and manually untwist the yarn. That's because of the 3 strands. Two you could put a safety pin in the last stitch loop and drop the work and it will untwist, but not 3. Sorry.

Some grocery stores have little cloth bags that are divided into compartments for produce. These work great, so do those small wine bottle carriers (cardboard). Meijer stores have the bags and the bottle carriers can be found anywhere that sells wine...cheap solution.

Gracie is right! A yarn shop near where I live, "creates" blends by winding balls of yarn from different strands. I tried the same thing myself and came up with a real winner recently. All you need is a ball winder, some imagination and a little time!
