Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you get for yourself

There's just something so inherently satisfying about winding yarn
into neat little cakes! As you can see, I got myself a Royal yarn
ball winder as a birthday gift to myself. The best part is that it
was half off [Side Note: If you sign up for email updates, the craft
stores will flood your inbox with coupons. Sometimes 2 or 3 a day.
Sometimes it is annoying. Every now and again, though, it comes in
handy.]. The only downside is that I'm running out of yarn to wind.


  1. Isn't it great! I too love winding yarn into cakes. I love to see the difference of the yarn from the hank to the cake. And then to knit it! so little time and way too many yarn cakes....Happy Birthday! (late)

  2. Good for you. I bought one this summer with my birthday money and it has really added to the enjoyment of my knitting.
