I Really, Really Need A Ball Winder

This took me one episode of Dr. Phil, one episode of Boston Legal, some news and most of an episode of Family Feud to complete:

And that's not even all of this yarn. So let me repeat. I really really need one of these:

If I had happened to own one of these handy dandy contraption when my massive 1000+ yarn skein arrived in the mail today, I may not still have half the dang thing to continue balling up! AHHH! At a time when I just wanted to get going on my knitting, instead I had to carefully and methodically, wind all of that yarn all in to balls, taking care not to let it all get tangled. Argh, I say. Argh!

But on to the yarn. Isn't it PURDY? hehe It turned out a tad more... pastel than what I had in mind, but I think it'll still be pretty. This is the pattern it's destined to be: The Jubilee scarf by Norah Gaughn for Borocco.

I'm so excited to get started!

And as soon as I get that ball winder, I'm totally gonna start unraveling sweaters with it too. How cool will THAT be?


  1. That is pretty!

    And once you get yarn ball winder- forget it. They're so much fun. I'll use any excuse to wind yarn.

  2. ball winders - worth every penny.

  3. I don't know what I would do without my ball winder and swifter. Knit Picks has them for a good price.

  4. yeah... i know... like $20 on Knitpicks, but I'm a poor student so I'll probably have to wait for christmas. I made a request on the iso thread on ravelry, maybe someone has an old one they'll sell for cheaper. :)

  5. You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
