I’ve been looking into ball winders because I have three balls of yarn from an afghan I “frogged”* many many years ago. (The balls were wound then.) I would like to convert them to something that is center-pull to use for knitting.
I found a Lacis ball winder for $24 (+ $6 shipping) but I can’t figure out if it is worthwhile or not. There are lots of raves for the ones at Joanns and KP, but those are quite a bit more expensive. :shock:
However, I am fascinated by the idea of a nostepinne, although I haven’t figured out what the dimensions of them are to ask DH to make one for me. I am even wondering if I could just use some long chopsticks to rewind my ancient yarn balls.
What do you all think? Should I continue to pursue the idea of handrolling or should I just give up and buy a mechanical winder? :eyebrow2:
- Did I use it right? Browsing the boards I have come to the conclusion that “frogging” is unraveling a work in progress, but I’m not really sure. :lol:
