52 Week Crochet Challenge - Week 12 - What is the crochet tip that you have learned that you use all the time
So...my tip is something I made to make my knitting and crochet go smoother and faster. I emptied a 2 liter soda bottle, cut the bottom off, punched holes along the cut edge and crocheted an edge and hanging cord. I then attached some hooks to the ceiling in my sewing room and hung the bottle neck down from the hooks. When I buy a skein of yarn from somewhere, i put it into the hanger, and then use my ball winder to make 2 or 3 center pull balls. This is a more manageable size to carry around in my purse and most of the projects I work on are small. While the photos are full of chaos this is my sewing room. I use it for my sewing, beading, crochet, knitting, and all my paper crafting. Then my daughter #2 and #3 come in a strew all their beading, jewelry making, clay making, etc... all over the place. I apologize for the busy photos.
