My new toy...

I finally got the ballwinder that I ordered from Joann's with a 50% off coupon a few weeks ago. The total came to only $24.09 and that includes shipping & tax. I thought that was pretty good. My son loved the yarn cakes and so did his army man.... The balls turned out HUGE! But it was so much easier than winding it by hand, and more fun too! I'm not sure who had more fun...build a tower... then knock it down...

I clearly need to come visit and "borrow" the swift! ;) The chair isn't cutting it.
You should have seen the disaster that I made out of a skein last night. I can get anything in a knot.

Wow, that bulky yarn in enormous! I'm surprised it fit on the winder. No wonder you need such huge needles. I can't wait to see the hat though. I'm in love with making hats. =)
