Yarn Winder

For my birthday, my sister gave me a yarn winder because I asked. I also got a waffle maker and that was awesome.

Anyway, I decided to test out the winder. This is what it looks like:

It’s a standard yarn winder, I guess. I’m not too familiar with them as I’ve always done it by hand.

The thing is I don’t have a swift. So, I improvised. I tried some free hand weights, but that was good. They kept falling over. I had my boyfriend hold the yarn while I winded it, and it worked fine, but he’s not always around to help with that. Then I tried some chairs.

The chair legs were maybe too long? It was okay. I’m debating if I should get a swifter. Anyone have experience with this kind of thing?

This is what the ball of yarn turned out to be:

It’s okay? I mean, it’s usable and won’t get tangled anymore (hopefully).

Until next time, happy crocheting!
