Odd yarn holder, and I'm a dork :-)
So here is me new 'yarn holder'. I knit in my car on my lunch hour, and was tired of chasing my yarn ball all over the passenger seat.
Cupholder works great!

Second picture is proof that I forget things in less time than it takes to learn them the first time.

The bottom of that dishcloth is what I was doing when I thought I was purling. I (for the second time) have been wrapping the yarn the wrong way around the needle.
I wondered last night why purling was so hard, it had been easier before. I pulled up the purling video here and went DUH!

So the purling I did to finish the cloth looks muuuuch better...lol.

As Sue said..whatever works! I usually use center pull balls so that doesn't happen, but on the few times I've pulled from the outside I use a bowl or even just keep the yarn in my knitting bag.

Even the center pulls can run around on you though.

The only time I've had them not behave is if the yarn is stuck and I give it a yank. I've been lucky I guess.

I like to use brown lunch bags. On the outside I write the project name. Inside I have my yarn, center pulled. This way the yarn stays clean and I can drop this lunch bag anywhere to work on my project. I also place inside any other tools I may need.

Some of my projects I keep in a ziplock bag - that way when I have to put my knitting down I just put it back in the ziplock and don't have to worry about it getting dirty. The 2.5 gallon Hefty bags work great for holding yarn and WIP!!
