another best idea ever...

From the Lion Brand Yarn periodic email (8/27/09):

Tip of the Week
Tricks of the trade from customers like you

Join us every week for tips, tricks, and advice shared by customers like you. This week's tip is from Wendy D.:

"I use a [cleaned out] two-pound coffee can to keep my balls of yarn hair- and debris-free while knitting. I cut holes in the plastic top and use metal rings [grommets] (found in hardware stores) so as to not snag the yarn. Pop in a few balls of my favorite yarn, pull through the holes and ta-da! No hair or lint on my yarn while I am knitting and it is easy to take in the car too!"

Now, to find a coffee can... I think I have a
Trader Joe's one around here somewhere. I abandoned it for bags of delicious Eight O' Clock Coffee. If you haven't tried that stuff, it rules... Go immediately to and sign up for Subscribe & Save with that stuff, you will not be sorry.
