How to Thread Yarn through a Tiny Eye

It's so tricky to thread yarn through some needles but sometimes it's necessary. So I discovered this neat and quick way of threading yarn through a tiny eye. Fold a piece of strong thread in half and thread both ends through the needle eye. Then, guide the end of yarn through the loop in the thread. Pull the thread through the needle. When the yarn reaches the eye, pull the thread firmly and it'll squeeze the yarn through the eye. Continue pulling the thread until the short yarn-end is pulled through the eye, then remove the thread and you're all set! Works everytime :)

  16. Another super easy way is to buy a little pack of those blue floss-thingys (i'm so technical, I know!) in the dental aisle. I think they're really for people with braces, but they look like a floppy needle with a REALLY big eye. I think you gey like 20-30 in a pack. They've been a staple in my craft room.

    Oh yeah...I'm loving the blue polish, too! :)
