Yarn Holder...greenspun.com : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread
If you can find 2 liter soft drink bottles with cap covering the bottom, fill clean bottle with hot water, let set for a while, pull cap off end of bottle.
Cut bottom out of bottle leaving about 1" all the way around.
Place skein of yarn in bottle, pull end of yarn thru neck.
Place cap on bottom of bottle.
This keeps yarn clean and the weight of bottle makes easier to pull yarn out without moving about so much.
