Splitting Threads

One of the problems I have with my cross stitch kits is that the different threads tend to get all jumbled up.

This is especially true of the smaller kits which don’t also come with those nice thread separators – you know, the bits of card with holes punched in.

However, I have recently discovered, quite by accident, a reasonable alternative for this mini kits: my crochet bag, which usually lives, wool spilling out, on the sofa where I stitch.

Then, as I finish needing each colour, they go back into the paper envelope of the kit. Nice and safe for next time.

How do you keep your threads untangled?
