“Waste not, want not” are wise words of advice, and every knitter knows that yarn scraps are a handy resource. Keeping up with those scraps, however, can make anyone want to just toss the whole lot out, which is why it’s so helpful to have convenient, compact storage like this container. Approximately 2.75 inches in length and width and 1.75 inches high, the design can be round, square, or hinged. The hole in the top is designed so that you can quickly push the scraps in while you’re working. Now, you can be prepared for that lovely scrap project waiting for you.
