If you knit, you’ve undoubtedly experienced that “geez, there should be a kitten in here” moment when your ball of yarn goes flying across the room. It’s frustrating, right?

All you need is a pyrex or other heavy (pottery or glass or steel) receptacle bigger than your ball of yarn and one of those rad paperclips with the little metal arms. You could also use a clothespin and rubber band, but the paperclip works best. Check it out:
