Another thrifty yarn holder, very comparable to the $25 plastic yarn ball at the knitting store, is a plastic iced tea jug from the dollar store. I removed the spout and covered it with a pretty flower sticker. The yarn comes out the spout on top and I especially like being able to see the yarn. I have one in hot pink and one in lime green clear plastic.

I love this idea for saving your yarn whil knitting. I havent seen a oatmeal container like this for some time ( I live in Canada) Ill have to keep my eyes open next time I shop. Ive been using those zippered plastic covers our sheets sets etc., come in, I love them.One less item for the land fill. The larger zipper plastic covers I use to store my larger item Ive already knit or crochet for gifts that havnt got a home yet. Also, for projects that use alot of yarn so I can keep it altogether. Im trying to be organized. Lois

I love some of the craft items that you tell us about-- however, because I live in Canada many of the items aren't available to me--such as the round oatmeal container, is there any one that can help me get one ? I also would like to find where I can buy sheets of crepe paper to make roses with-- I know traditionally roses are made with red--but I prefer yellow roses, and I would need the green for the leaves too -- here all I can get is the rolls of crepe paper and it doesn't work for the petal and leaf pattern I need for the roses. If you can help me with any or all of this, please send an e-mail to Thx in advance, Betty
