Yarn Ball Winder

I bought a yarn ball winder about a year ago.  It took me this long to get the thing out of the box and give it a try.  I must say, I am glad I did!  I will be housesitting at my daughter’s place in a few weeks, and hope to crochet some pretty flowers while there.  I am using leftover yarns from Lawson’s blankie.  I am amazed at all of the goodies I am getting out of that particular yarn purchase. This is what the yarn looked like a few days ago.

So I set out to turn this mess into nice, little balls of yarn.  The insides of these skeins were some of the most tangled I have ever dealt with.  Beautiful yarns, but a pain as far as the tangling goes.

Anyhoo, here are a couple “after” shots.  Looking forward to turning these beauties into flowers. :)

    1. If you do get one, Vikki, don't wait a year to use it like I did. LOL It really is easy to use. :) I have lots of odds and ends I need to turn into nice, neat yarn "cakes". It's gonna take me a while. ;) Last but not least, thanks for your comment. :)
