Simple Genius


Sometimes the simplest things really are the best aren't they?  Saw this image on Pinterest (where else!) and wondered why this hasn't been adopted en-mass as a way of storing threads of all sorts. 

So easy to wind around and secure the ends.  I'm already thinking embroidery threads and narrow ribbons.

Tracked the original source down to the Cozy Homemaking blog - where I may now be lost for some time.

(Re the blog, I seem to have been lost for some weeks - a combination of summer, circumstance and illness.  Where does time go?)

  1. Why did I not think of this in all my years of intarsia knitting. It would have made life less knotty and frustrating. 20 clothes pegs would have been less stressful than the colossal knot!

    1. I know! One of those things that's so simple it doesn't occur to you.

Oh - go on! It's so lovely to receive messages, and I really do appreciate it.

I always do my best to reply to messages - both here on the blog and personally (as long as I can see an email address)
