Rhinebeck – oh, and the Strauch Jumbo Ball Winder too

I noticed that my post about my Rhinebeck purchases only covered the yarn. I also bought a Strauch Jumbo Ball Winder at the Carolina Homespun booth.

Easy to use? Yes, the first 2 users were my 5 year old & my 3 year old. We had no real issues of tangling or anything after we clearly established that you only wound in one direction.

Jumbo? Well I never would have tried winding 2 balls of Patons Decor on top of each other on my old winder, but that’s exactly what I did for Gloria in preparation for a class at this coming weekend’s retreat.

After:

This took very little time at all. Perhaps it would have taken less time if I hadn’t had to negotiate how long each child got a turn and whether or not the turn was over yet. Fun!

Now perhaps I should get started preparing my own homework for the Needlers’ Retreat!
