Being an avid knitter, one of the best gadgets I’ve bought is this:

Yarn Winder

It’s a Boye Electric Yarn Ball Winder. I used it to wind lots of travel-size yarn balls and took them with me whenever I went on long holidays – knitting doesn’t stop just because I’m on holiday, you know. So I brought these along on my last trip:

Balls Of Yarn

Tiny Balls of Yarn – Only About 3 cm (1 inch) Tall

As my knitted dolls use only oddments of yarn, it was handy to have all these colours available – just in case I need it. Unfortunately, I’ve haven’t seen this gadget in the craft shop lately. Has anyone come across one? Or another brand perhaps?
