There’s been one thing that has frustrated me since I started needle tatting (all of 3 days ago) and that is keeping the ball of yarn in one place. Nothing is more aggravating than pulling on thread that won’t move because it’s stuck under the recliner, or in the recliner, or behind the recliner.
So here is my answer:
It’s easy, it’s cheap, and best of all – it works.
You will need a coffee can and,
Some cheap eyelets
And a hammer of course, but I figure you know what that looks like.
Put an eyelet in the center of the lid like so.
Put the yarn in the coffee can.
Thread the yarn through the eyelet.
Then pop the lid on.
That’s it. All total I spent $1.67 for the eyelets at the evil big box store which shall remain nameless. They came with an eyelet tool. It’s all good.
