Knitting With QueerJoe – All About Ball-Winders
It’s been a while. But I finally got around to recording a new episode of Knitting With QueerJoe. And today, it’s all about ball-winders.
Comparison of Three Different Ball-Winders
Do you own a ball-winder? Do you like it? Have you ever looked at better ball-winders?
Is yours plastic and inexpensive? (promotional link)
Are you looking to upgrade to a jumbo winder? (promotional link)
Or are you looking to get a nice hand-crafted fine-wood winder?
Prices, quality and usefulness have changed a lot over the years since I’ve been knitting when it comes to ball-winders.
It’s been a while since I recorded an episode of Knitting With QueerJoe, but if you want a good comparison of ball-winders, you’ll want to watch this episode.
I’d also like to hear about your experience with ball-winders. So all the blog readers can hear opinions other than mine.
I made some great progress on the Usonian Shawl in the last two days.
Photos do not convey how soft and beautiful this yarn is. And how well it’s knitting up with this design. I am so grateful to be exposed to newer knitters who are exposing me to some great designs.
It’s also one of those designs that starts out with 3 stitches. And goes to around 200 stitches. So the knitting goes a lot more slowly as I progress.
Fortunately, it’s a fun knit, so I look forward to finishing each section. And starting the next section.
