|Late night pic, sorry!|
I saw it on a FaceBook ad, then did a little digging to find out more about the Yarnit (love the name!). I finally gave in and ordered one with some Christmas money I was stashing. When it came, I had gotten the wrong color bottom, but one email later had the correct one in the mail to me, and no hassles at all. It's a small company, all US based, so I appreciate being able to support another small business!
The Yarnit I got was the Stashless Cooper (no mustache sticker, but with a purple bottom and clear top so I can see true yarn color and have my fun purple part still). It is very sturdy, not that I've dropped it or anything (only on carpet so far)... I also got the 'bases loaded' which has a tiny pair of scissors, stitch markers, and darning needle that all fit perfectly inside!
My only complaint about the Yarnit is that it's too small. I can fit a skein of baby yarn inside (after it was balled up), or some of my 'smaller' balls but not a giant one. Which still works out since it seems like the little ones are more expensive and I want to protect them more anyway! I was able to make a baby hat with light yarn and no extra 'bits' got added in from the yarn sitting beside me on the couch, or rolling away at Starbucks during yarn group, or becoming a pillow for the dog...or picking up my hair that seems to attach itself to my projects. (There really is a part of me in every project!)
|Side view with the locking plug. A choking hazard, but it stays in until you pull it out!|
(This isn't a paid or compensated review, I just love this product! but if they want to compensate me...I wouldn't say no to another Yarnit! LOL)
