Clamps securely onto a flat surface
I purchased foam plumbing pipe insulation in 8' lengths from the hardware store.
I cut the foam in 4 "pieces, which slide easily over the large center dowel of the winder.
To start, I push the yarn into the seam of the foam and let it hang out the top edge
The yarn winds beautifully onto the foam core.
I tuck the end into the other end of the seam which gives me
a ball that can be pulled from the center or the end.
This is fantastic for knitting, plying and casting on knitting stitches.
I recently purchased the Madd Batt'r drum carder from Strauch,
a work horse that turns out fantastic art batts.
So I knew this ball winder would be a winner!
