I’ve been having fun this week with a new toy – my very own yarn winder!
An early Christmas present from my parents – I’ve been after one of these for ages so I could make little yarn cakes out of some of my unwanted yarn scraps and awkward yarn skeins. So I sat there yesterday afternoon and wound wool – I must have looked like a crazy lady winding for hours at the kitchen table hehe!
I concentrated on blue for my first winding session…
… which I am now happily making into a scrapghan 🙂
It’s so nice to be able to put all my scraps to good use – a lot of this yarn has been sitting in a bag for years getting no love at all, but now I can wind it into useable balls I can finally make something from it 🙂
This is what I have done so far – it measures approx. 15” x 15” at the moment…
I plan to keep going, using random blues at random times, until I have used all my scraps.
I can’t believe I’ve been crocheting since 2008 and have only now got a yarn winder! I would highly recommend one to any crocheter or knitter out there – they’re so useful and not even that expensive (this one was £9 from Ebay).
So it’s a thumbs up for the yarn winder from me! Hope you’re having a nice week <3
