Wine or Wool?

Being pregnant and then breast feeding has meant that I haven't had any wine for the last two years. How depressing. While I was looking at the wine collection this morning (which incidentally has still dwindled due to J's lack of abstinence in that department) I noticed that we had some cardboard 6 bottle carriers. Which gave me an idea. So 60 seconds later, with the help of a large knitting needle, I had this!

It holds six 100gm balls of yarn, is completely portable and best of all, was free with the purchase of 6 bottles of wine. You could add grommets or eyelets to make the holes snag free, or put the yarn in plastic bags if you're worried about the yarn snagging on the cardboard but for cheap acrylic, it works a treat just the way it is. And once I stop breast feeding, I can do 5 ball projects and have room for a roadie!
