Reign in some of the mess and have a little fun while doing it!
All of those little bits and bobs are always floating all around the place.
Needles and hooks and stitch markers have basically turned your couch into a giant rattle of sorts…you know…if you could pick your couch up and shake it anyway…
Reduce the chaos (or at least tell yourself you’re going to) AND have a laugh every time you see this *ahem* beautiful set of baskets sitting in your crochet space 🙂
The small, 4″ basket is perfect for holding hooks and such.
The medium, 6″ basket works well as a cake holder, or to hold bigger things, like eyeglasses and your crochet gauge ruler.
The large, 10″ basket is perfect for holding tiny scrap balls of yarn or maybe a small WIP.

You’ll see this called Intarsia in the video, but I have since learned that, after all this time of doing this thing, this method is actually called Fair Isle.
Intarsia is specifically where you would use a separate bobbin for each and every section where the color changes (using the video’s example, the H, I, ! and Background would all have a separate bobbin in Intarsia. Where Fair Isle, the colors are carried across the wrong side of the work.
