ball winder!

I used the joann.com promotion code (50% off a single item until June 1) to buy myself one of those mechanical ball winders. In the past, I’ve just gone over to Sophie’s Yarns and asked to use theirs, but I no longer live two blocks away.

I’m very excited about this, because for $30 I just got something that will save me so much time. Obviously, it’s not difficult to wind the yarn myself, but it’s such a chore to do. At knitting group last fall a friend was so excited to start knitting her first item, but the group of us told her she had to start by winding the hank into a ball. What a downer that was for her!
