I'd been keeping all my yarn in this big bin
and the crocheted rounds in zip lock bags, but it was a pain in the butt to drag out every time I wanted to crochet. Taking out a skein or two made me lose rounds & left the skeins vulnerable to small boys. Plus the more rounds I created, the more space they took up, so I had bags all over the place.
I went to Michael's & JoAnn Fabrics looking for a craft bag of some sort, maybe with wheels, that could hold everything compactly. They had some nice scrapbooking storage bags & some nice cross stitch & embroidery storage bags and some nice yarn storage bags for knitting & crochet projects. But my goodness, the price! Even without wheels.
Then I went to Wal Mart to see what I could find. This is what I came up with. The bag itself was $8 and the little bins were 97 cents each. I've got 3 of them. I can keep a variety of yarn in the bag, which makes it easier to get the 'random' look in the squares. I don't lose track of the rounds & it zips shut so the boys can't see the yarn & aren't tempted to play with it. I just don't zip it completely shut and feed the yarn through the space.
My wrist is feeling much better. I did a little crocheting today & it didn't hurt but I'm not doing much yet. I haven't found any of those bracing gloves, but I'm headed to the big city Saturday to do some shopping with my GFs & will check a few places there. I'm thinking I might need to change my crochet style. I use the overhand (knife) method, maybe the underhand (pencil) method would give me less stress on those muscles.
Pat, I'm signed up to get on Ravelry. I signed up back in November but apparently I left an 'n' out of my email addy so it went to someone else or bounced. I only realized that a week or so ago when I saw a blog post about it. So I had to go back & sign up again. I think I should get my invite in the next couple days.
