the other day, knitwear designer extraordinare michele wang shot us an email asking if we liked our heavy duty ball winder from nancy’s knit knacks. being on a spotty wifi connection while on vacation and heavily distracted by this fellow with the big stick. . .
we have the motorized version (which means no more hand-cranking for us!) it’s also got a special piece of technology in it that triggers the motor to stop if it come across a tangle in the skein which would require you to stop and unravel.
it’s lovely. it’s wonderful. how did we ever live without this beautiful piece of machinery? even shot a video of the ballwinder in action (which the little man finds immensely entertaining to watch)! apologies for the lack of audio, the tv was blaring in the background. the winder makes a soothing humming sound that’s not annoying at all!
is it worth its heavy price tag? for us, it is! if you find yourself winding a lot of yarn, particularly skeins greater than 75g in size or art yarn that doesn’t fit thru the loop of your run of the mill yarn winder, this might just be nancy’s knit knacks’ answer to all your yarn winding dilemmas.
ps. that’s rhichard devrieze’s peppino in go lightly, taking an inaugural ride on our yarn winder!
