Dyeing Ball Winds

A wonderful big box arrived! My aunt and I got a ball winder and six new colors of dyes! I’m so excited. I can hardly wait to start winding dye balls . . . no. Dyeing wind balls . . . Oh! Balling wound dyes. Aaah!

We tried the ball winder out on some store-bought yarn. It worked beautifully. We got it rather inexpensively at Knitting-Warehouse. I wasn’t expecting them to ship here very quickly, but they got it to me in just a few days.

There’s an umbrella swift (to hold the yarn skeins) and some blank yarn and fiber coming from another store. At least I think it’s coming. I haven’t heard anything back from them about a tracking number. Hmm. I’d better go check on that.

    I L-O-V-E my ball winder. I got it for Christmas a couple of years ago and I use it all the time! Still waiting for a swift though . . . I still use a chair back most of the time, since none of my kids wants to sit still with their hands holding the skein for very long!

    There’s a swift on the Knitting Warehouse site that is relatively inexpensive, but they were out of stock when we ordered it.
