Oh, I'm SO running with the music jokes.  Anyway, I'm still tweaking with the yarn house idea, and these are two more I came up with.  I'm pretty happy, but there's more changes to be made.  Still has the magnetic closure, the hole in the top for the yarn to come out of, and the strap you can snap onto your wrist or a chair arm.  What do you guys think? don't mind the husky hair. My kids are blowing their coats right now. How embarrassing.

Great idea and nicely made.
Have to admit i thought it was a frozen cola, frappe, ice chocolate or milkshake holder when I first saw it!  Embarrassed

Just as I am

I love these yarn houses. Especially the Gnome. Where did you ever find such cute fabric?

How big are these? How much yarn would they hold?
This is all I can think of right now. But these are awesome!!

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

These are lovely - I would love to make one too.  If you are considering a tute I think you could be sure that it would interest heaps of people.  You have thought of every design detail that could make a knitter or crocheter's life easier and prettier!
