Wind me up


I have a wool winder!!!!! It was sitting in my letterbox when I got home this afternoon. Dad must have been under the house.

It's doing a sterling job so far. :)

I managed to down load the Christmas break photos today, so previous posts are about to look a whole lot prettier. Hope Blogger is behaving, because I got some wool to wind, baby.

HURRAH!! Happy dance for the wool winder! So glad it's been unearthed and is enjoying its life being an essential tool again. Just think - a few months ago I didn't even know what a wool winder was...

I'll still need you (*pats Spidey's back gently*) - you have a yarn swift. ;)

Oh synchronised wool winding - the new Commonwealth Games Sport.

jejune, a few months ago you were borrowing my needles - now I'm borrowing yours. You progress well, Grasshopper ;)

Aaah, but will my stash EVER be as big as yours? I fear not...

I am very jealous! It's on my wish list - I also love the brand - "Toyota"!

eBay is a boon to the modern knitter. Sometimes the woolwinders sell for a ridculously high price, but you can get them for under $20 including postage.
