Clever idea for a teapot...


Alright folks, I just had to share this...I saw it on Pinterest and tried it out for myself and it is such a clever idea!  If you don't have a yarn bowl or box, try using your teapot instead!  Simply put the ball of yarn in it and pull it through the spout.  This is especially helpful if you don't want your yarn ball rolling around on the floor, etc.   

As you can see my yarn ball is a little too big and/or my teapot is extra tiny, so make sure that if you try this your yarn has enough space to move about!  It was maybe a little too tight, but still worked just fine.

  2. How clever is that! Great mix of two wonderful things: Wool and tea(pots). Much more beautiful than some yarn bowls I've seen ;-)

  4. I roll up my yarn ball and put it in a ziplock bag depending on how big the ball is depends on the ziplock size. Cut the corner and away to knitting I can always see how much yarn is left and it keeps it from rolling everywhere.
