My dearest hubby gave me my Christmas present somewhat earlier. It's a yarn ball winder with an umbrella! I love it! I am a very practical knitting gal. The type of yarn I buy is not wound into balls, so I had to do this myself manually - a process that takes a long time and takes away from the precious knitting time.
This wonderful gift will help me wind yarn in the matter of seconds. The skein is put on the adjustable umbrella and one end of it is put on the winder. As you are winding the handle, the yarn is being pulled and the umbrella is spinning around.
The result is a perfectly wound yarn ball. Thank you, honey! You are beyond thoughtful and sweet. Every gal should have a guy like you.
