For you traveling knitters and crocheters, there’s an easy way to make your own project caddy for the car, train, bus (or other) trip. When you get a new set of sheets, save the vinyl zippered case they came in, and poke a few holes in the top, then pass through your yarn. The pockets come in handy for scissors, needles, hooks, and patterns. I used a piece of card stock to separate the two balls of yarn, but you could easily sew or glue in a permanent divider. Not only does this keep your project clean, dry, and self-contained, but you can see through the bag to spot your tools. Using center-pull balls will keep it extra tidy.

    A great way to reuse those zippered pouches. I save them, but rarely do anything other than use them for storage. Now I have something that I can take with me to work to add some creativity to an otherwise uncreative day.
