TOMTAO CAGE YARN/THREAD STAND
Use a medium size (3 wire rings) tomato cage with long wire spokes to put into ground to make a yarn/thread stand.
1. Turn upside down.
2. Bend each wire spoke to opposite side and bend 2" over top wire ring.
3. Push each wire spoke down to form a bowl shape.
4. Leave plain or paint as desired.
5. Place bowl or pan in sunken area of stand for ball of yarn or crochet thread.
Keeps it from rolling around and away from you.
Place stand to your left or right of chair (depends on whether you are right or left handed). Thread or yarn will be right height to preven "drag" as you crochet or knit.
