How do you like to store your yarn stash?
Is it shoved in plastic bags or boxes and piled high in the cupboard? Or do you have it out on display in gorgeous containers like these wicker tubs from Basket Basket?
The thing is I know that by having all my treasured lovely yarn out so I can see and be inspired by it is pleasing to my eyes and good for my soul, but at the same time I don't have that much space to spread out, so I have to do a bit of both and these tubs are perfect for storing my extra special skeins.
They have been sent to me by Virginia at basketbasket.co.uk to do a review on, which I have to be honest was instigated by me. You see I bought my new handbag from the online store a few weeks back and I really love it! It's sturdy, stylish and zips up! Just the right size for me, too big and I fill it with rubbish and can never find anything :o)
I'm really impressed with the packaging this firm uses to send out their goods, earth friendly bubble wrap and brown paper - that I can put straight into the recycling bin. I appreciate that they are responsible about such things and wish more companies would do the same.
I received a nest of three barrel bowls, they are surprisingly sturdy, very well made and I really love the ring handles that are attached securely to each side of the basket.
They are of course useful for many things, I fancy using the smallest one to display a house plant in and maybe one to sit at the bottom of the stairs - you know so I can chuck in bits and bobs that need taking upstairs, and just do one trip when it's full.
But what I like best is using them for my yarny projects, caked up soft yarns in lovely colours nestled happily together in their new home.

This give-away is open to UK residents only I'm afraid.
I will use the random number generator to pick the winner and I will do that on Sunday 18th October 2015 at 3pm.
The winner's basket won't be full of yarn but I will send a few little surprise goodies out as well :0)
'till next time...
