A couple of weeks ago my darling husband agreed to help me wind up a ball of yarn from a skein. He sat patiently with his hands up holding the 455metre skein of yarn and little did he know he how long it was going to take. When his hands got tired, I transferred the skein to the coffee table and kept winding... well I didn't get too far before everything was all tangled up! oops. Eventually, two nights later, I untangled and got a nice ball of yarn ready for knitting...
Whilst the result is a fairy tale, my husband was traumatised! So yesterday, on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I told him that I had to wind up another ball from another skein of yarn, he had a horrified look on his face... heeheehee
He shook his head and went out to the garage... two minutes later he came in with a cardboard which he improvised as a ball winder for me! He said that's the best he could come up with in such short notice : ) made me smile!
