organizing yarn for color work

We have an upscale grocery store in our area where we shop from time to time. Actually, my husband is the family grocery shopper (yes, I am very grateful!). He says that the cost of the fresh fruits and veggies is actually comparable to other stores. But I digress...

He has purchased wine at this store and has been given a complimentary "go green" bag with 6 compartments and a handle to carry the wine bottles home without breakage. As I was getting ready to do a knitting project with several yarn colors, this bag came to mind. I am able to put each color in a separate compartment so that the various yarns do not get tangled as I knit. At the same time, I only have to carry around one bag for the project. What a way to reuse a reusable grocery bag!

Once I'm done with the project (a vest for that wonderful husband), I will post it here.

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There’s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!

  1. What a great idea ~ thanks for sharing!!! I can't wait to see your finished project...God Bless!

  2. I'm glad you like it, Patty. It's made my knitting life easier.

  3. I'd love to see a picture of the bag and the yarn. :D

  4. I will try to post a picture as soon as my daughter returns from vacation with the camera that I use. It belongs to her so I will have to be patient!

  5. That is so neat - I can't wait to see the photo!
