I have a friend who is a long time knitter, and she showed me a gadget she uses to keep her ball of yarn from running all over the place while she knits. Basically, it is something you wrap your yarn around so that when you pull on the strand as you need it for throwing, it holds the ball of yarn in place as it spins to unwind.
Imagine an inverted childs top, that spins on a base, while the yarn is wrapped around the center stick. Oh, I hope this makes sense to someone! If anyone does know what I’m talking about, any ideas where I could get one? I have another friends who knits alot, and I’d like to get her one for Christmas, as well as one for myself. As it is I have to put the yarn balls in a box to keep them from falling off rhe table beside me while I knit.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
