A QueerJoe Birthday
I went to bed last night in my fifties and awoke in my sixties. The ravaging effects of aging is clear.
Special Birthday Post
It came a little early, but I held off until today to post my 60th birthday gift.
Yes, thanks to the magic of online forums like Yarned & Dangerous, I was finally able to allow myself to get a jumbo ball winder. I’ve had ball-winder envy for years, but I always balked at the prices.
Until this one.
I took it for a spin with one of the biggest hanks of yarn I winder (660 yards) and this is alpaca yarn, so it’s slippery and unwieldy to deal with on my old ball-winders. I used it without clamping it to the table, and I was able to easily hold it down except for one snag on the swift, but it definitely works better clamped.
I couldn’t recommend it more highly…definitely worth it.
