Using Grape Boxes for Holding Yarn

Yes, I said grape boxes. You know the kind, plastic, with lots of holes to keep the grapes fresh. They're a great way to keep the yarn balls your working with from rolling across the floor. They also keep my cats from unwinding the balls in wonderful patterns all over my living room. Any plastic container with holes that's large enough will work but I find the 2 lb. grape size is just right for a lot of my projects. The large flat ones strawberries come in are great when your working with two or three small skeins. I really like using them when i'm making something that I have to hold several strands together, it works great, the yarn feeds out through the holes in the box with no fuss
