Hi... I use the little tabs from loaves of packaged bread!... Works really well for me... keeps the balls neat... and the tabs are easy to remove... I just attach them to a thread on the ball plus the end of the yarn ... leaving a little tail! 3

SO MANY BITS! This is enormously helpful.

Thanks for this tip on organizing left over yarns. I like the way you organize your yarn using the clothes pins. Very ingenious. You can also use big clips for big amounts of left overs. I noticed you chose the uncolored wooden clips. Why? My guess is that you probably would like to use clips in neutral colors? Another idea is to use colored clips depending on the color of the left over yarn. Well, it's up to you, guys how you choose you clips. Thanks.

This is a great idea! I have tons of wooden clothespins that I can use for this. I think you could clip them to a line you've strung in your closet or on a hanger.

I save my mesh onion bags I get from the store with onions in them to place my scraps of leftover yarn in. You just roll them into a ball and put them in the bag and they won't go anywhere, when you tie it up or secure the opening with a rubber band or other clip. You can place several balls of stray yarn in the bag together and they will stay securely tied up till you open the bag.
