I am so lucky to have a dad like mine! After the stash I bought from Knit Nation I wanted to start knitting with it straight away - however that would involve hand winding each skein into a ball and with some of the skeins being up to 1000 meters long I was not looking forward to that!
I desperately wanted a ball winder but they are quite expensive and so I showed a picture of one to my dad and a week later he had made one! Just from looking at the picture!
here it is!
and here is the lovely ball it made!
