Countdown to Knitmas - Day 11!

Today's tip is an oldie but a goodie. Sometimes the tail can get in your way, dangling there trying to make you knit with it or getting wrapped around the working yarn. Sometimes you may need that tail to stay long (for a later seam, perhaps). Would you like a handy hint using a household item to solve the case of the annoying tail?

Whenever I wipe the kitchen counter, I seem to find an abandoned bread tab. These little tabs are the perfect thing to toss into your notions bag rather than into the garbage. Wrap your tail around that tab and you are short one less annoyance.

Happy Needling,
