A whole new world

One of my Christmas gifts was a yarn winder. I saw Mikey on The Crochet Crowd show how they could be used and I thought then that in the future one could be useful. I liked the idea of having balls of yarn that would definitely pull from the centre and being able to stack them sounded great.

Ball winderThe photo above makes it look like my feline assistants helped… they did not. I was struggling to find a surface I could attach the bracket to. The cat’s activity center/scratching post worked quite well 🙂

The balls produced are smaller and stackable 🙂


My stash is already looking deceivingly smaller! I’ve only wound up the balls that I’m currently using in projects, when it’s all done I’ll have lots of room for more wool 🙂
