11. A Repurposed DIY Yarn Stand! From the Craft Alternative
This is another cat proof one (sort of, they can still pull the yarn until it is all over the floor unless you cover it with a shower cap or something).
I think this is a gorgeous yarn holder and the perfect height for when you’re sitting on the couch!
With a little spray paint, you’ll be all set!
The best spray paint IMHO, is Montana Gold Matte Spray Paint, look at all the lovely colorsH–
12. Blocking Your Crochet Squares
This is one of my FAVOURITE tutorials!
When I first started crocheting granny squares, they were all different sizes and looks insane.

I usually use this kind of spray starchfor this type of blocking now.
