Do you have a bag like this? Full of long-ish bits of thread/floss? If not, I think you should! On several occasions I’ve been a few stitches short and I had no more left of a certain colour. Panic!
But usually, with a quick rummage through the Loose Ends bag, I find a bit of thread that’s long enough for me to finish what I’m working on. Phew! Complete meltdown averted!
All loose bits of floss that I don’t remember to wind around the skein goes in the bag. Well, all bits that are over 10 cm/4″ long or so.
Although, since there are so many bits now.. maybe I should atleast sort them by colour. And perhaps even wind them on card or something. You know, one day, when I’m feeling really organised. ;-)
