I saw this technique in Knitting Paradise but lost the link to the woman that came up with the idea. You know how balls of yarn roll around on the floor when you are trying to knit. She suggested a dish and a paper clip on the edge to stop the ball from rolling around . I went immediately to my kitchen and found a bowl ( really, any container will do) and put the clip on it. Then I went one further and put the clip on the yarn holders on the passap machine. I can’t wait to use it the next time I have a small ball that I want to use up. Sometimes you can’t find the inside yarn to feed up to the machine and this will help. In the first picture I have one feeding from the outside and one feeding from the inside.
