Love My Ball Winder

I have been crocheting for over 7 years and winding all my leftover yarn by hand - a slow, time-consuming task. I justified it as a relaxing mindless part of the process. Just over a week ago now, I decided to splurge and buy a yarn ball winder for $50 at London Yarns. I say 'splurge' because I could have shopped around for a lower price, but I like to support our local yarn shop plus I didn't feel like waiting even one day longer.
I secured my new ball winder to an old wooden high chair and went to work on this colourful collection of yarn balls plus more from storage.
Once the table was completely covered in yarn 'cakes', I stopped to admire the view. I love how seeing all that yarn on display fills my head with ideas. But then I worry as there are so many things to make, yet so little time. I expect this is a common problem amongst crafters.
I do Love My Ball Winder. Making these stackable, centre-pull yarn cakes was so fast and easy, I wish I had invested in a gadget like this sooner.
