A really good buy
Such fun! Such a time-saver! Brilliant service from Woolstack again. Although there were less expensive makes on the market,I chose to pay the £30-odd for this one. It comes in a stout cardboard box, so it is easy to store when not in use. it's good quality. The instructions were simple, and clear. I fixed it to my ironing board. You do have to tighten the wing nut firmly. I had so much fun winding the first yarn cakes, that I looked around for other untidy, half collapsed, balls of wool, and made them into cakes too. The only minor snag was that, when I wound three strands together, they didn't stay together as one strand when knitting. One strand stayed taut; the two others bellied. But it was easy to cut, and re-wind. I would do this again, but make smaller yarncakes if winding 3 strands together. This latter comment is nothing to do with the KnitPro ball winder itself; just an observation on what may happen if you want to wind two or three strands together. Wish I'd bought one years ago.
