Even though I have been crocheting for years I always find great ideas and inspiration in these ebooks. I usually down load them to my iPad and then I can look thru and pick out only the ones I intend to use. Thank you so much for sharing all of these great tips.

Instead of having ugly clip clothes pins with yarn wound on them...I take an ordinary drinking straw...feed the yarn through it...wind the yarn around the straw. (opposite end from where the yarn comes out the top) Make sure you wind the yarn evenly by turning the ball often. Wind the end of the yarn around the outside of the ball and secure it. Take the straw out of the ball and you have a neat ball of yarn, feeding from the middle. It doesn't roll around the table or floor as you're crocheting or knitting since it feeds from the middle. I have used this method for years. You can also just wind your scraps this way, and store them in a plastic bag. Happy crafting! Ann

I have been crocheting for years and my biggest problem is getting AND keeping myself organized. My husband complains about the yarn, half-finished projects, and various and sundry things associated with the craft laying about with no place to go that is not laying in the middle of the living room! Anything that helps me organize myself is extremely helpful and accepted eagerly.

I have had the same problem. It drives my husband crazy all of tge stuff associated with crochet i leave around. I always try to organize and then everythin is all over the place again and then I'll do it again. I think really I just need a craft room. I'm sure everything will be all over my bedroom still.

Please do not put yarn scraps out for bird nest making. Even scraps as small as an inch can wrap around baby bird feet and wings and trap them in the nest to die a slow death.

I use the hanging closet storage but prefer the ones with the clear zippered fronts in order to keep the yarn dust free Though I used to use wooden spring type clothes pins for yarn bobbins I have discovered a better idea Foam hair rollers Remove the foam cylinders wrap the yarn around the middle post and snap shut to keep yarn in place They come in sizes and a bag of is less than On the ones I have the center post is free to spin and has holes you can thread the beginning of the yarn through If you buy ones where the center post doesn't spin cut a length of drinking straw and drop it over the center post so your yarn can unwind easily If I am sitting in my rocking chair to crochet I put my yarn in a plastic shopping bag and put the hand…Read More hold holes over the arm of the rocker with the yarn coming out from between them that way my cats can't chase my unwinding yarn
