For those of you who can’t bear to toss out the smallest bit of yarn, saving them up for scrappy projects, this is for you.
I save all of those balls, large and small, but when I go to use them most of the ends have unraveled and I have to untangle the mess, taking my time from doing what I love, knitting or crocheting.
I ordered tiny - and I do mean tiny - clothes pins to try and use as stitch markers but they didn’t work well for that. BUT…when I went to sort out those little balls, I tried this (see photo).
Works great! The clothespins are on Amazon (of course) and you get a lot for a few dollars. Well worth it now that I have found a good use for them. It takes a bit to get the hang of using such small pins, but once you do, they are easy to use to secure the loose ends.
Just thought you’d like to know.
