Crafty: ORT jar

image

At the Streatham knitting group on Tuesday, one of the ladies introduced me to the concept of the ORT jar.

ORT – or “old ragged thread” – is where you put all your short ends of thread as your working your way through a project. As a result, the jar will build up with layers of thread, chronicalling the projects you have worked through until the jar is full.

So far, I have what you see above. I’ll let you know once it’s full!
