My hubby was nice enough to help with making my yarntainers. I couldn't hammer the rivets in hard enough and I'm not very good with a drill. I didn't want to damage my knitting hands. LOL I decided to do these because I knit outside a lot in the summer and take my knitting camping of course. There was no way I was going to pay $10 for one (Heck that's a cone & 2 skeins of Peaches & Creme) and I only have $8 in all 3 of these. The rivets cost almost $5, and I have plenty more to make some more yarntainers.
As for my yarn bras they cost a whole $1 for 2 bath puffs. I saw these on someone else's blog, but can't remember it. When you cut the string in the middle you get a long tube of netting. I measured mine and it was 7 feet long. That's quite a few yarn bras. Just thought everyone would like ideas for saving money for more yarn!!

The title of this post REALLY caughter my attention. I was thinking to myself(the bras part!>>LOL).

Good thing I was patient and kept reading. Those yarn "bras"(couldn't they think of a better name?????) are really neat.

Thanks for sharing.
