Hello,

Very creative idea for your yarn.

I have been looking for away to organize my yarn, keep it from the shedding dog hair, and untangled.

Would you mind posting a photo of the "Yarn Bottle"

Thanks,

Renee

The Russian Join is very strong but if you're into tatting and what not, it won't work as its too bulky. But most projects I do, like Amigurumi and blankets and things lend themselves very well to RJ.

I love the Russian Join. It is great as long as your item will tolerate a thick stitch or two as the yarn is almost double right at the join. At the end of the row it is really handy. No ends to weave in.

If a yarn is really slippery, I'll put it in some sort of sock -- usually a knee high hosiery (cheap) and use it from the middle of the skein or cake. As I use the yarn the sock keeps pressure on the outside and prevents the yarn from tangling.

I tried that once and had problems when I got a horrible knot in the yarn.
I have a plastic tea pitcher that I cut the spout so that I can get the yarn out if I need to.

I 'bottle' my yarns by cutting a door in the side of a clean 2 liter soda bottle. Some skeins fit in easily, for yarn from larger skeins and recovered yarn, I make balls to fit the bottles. When I am using a yarn, I run the working end through the top. They look pretty on the shelf, reduce tangling, keep the cats out, and have really been a blessing.

I am presently working on a Moorish Mosaic Afghan with seven colors. The bottles really help when I have to carry several colors at once
