This year, just like other years, my husband and family asked what I wanted for my birthday and Christmas. I’ve bought several hanks of hand dyed yarns this year and I quickly realized how challenging it can be to wind them by hand. The first hank I tried to wind by hand got so tangled that it took me a couple of hours to get it untangled and wound up. Needless to say, by that time, I was too tired to crochet with my beautiful new yarn! The second hank was a little easier because I wrapped it around the back of a chair and carefully wound the yarn into a ball. Not bad – BUT I found a yarn swift and ball winder on line! Let me just say – it is AMAZING and made winding my beautiful yarn so much easier!!!
So back to the gift idea – I made it really easy on hubby – I ordered everything the yarn swift, winder and a beautiful yarn bowl) and I let him pay for it! It doesn’t get much better than that!!
If you have never seen a yarn swift and winder in action, here’s how it works –
