Coming out of hibernation to share a yarn tip


Want to know a thrifty tip for winding your yarn into a centre-pull ball?

Wind it round a toilet roll tube, leaving the starting tail poking out of the top, then simply remove the tube and away you go!

The centre-pull means that the ball stays in one place while you’re knitting with it and won’t roll round the floor. Safe from playful cats! 🐾

Let me know if you give this suggestion a go or if you have any other thrifty tips for knitters … I’d love to hear about them!
