    It's a great idea for anyone who knits or crochets, it's so time consuming and the balls always have a mind of their own, I would give it 100 stars.


    It's not the quietest thing in the world, but it's quiet enough that I ended up winding 3 skeins on my first go, something which would have taken me about 2 hours to do before.


    I don't take the time to ball it before I start because I don't have time to sit and crochet, and this yarn winder is so easy that it can do the job in just a few moments.


    It would be good to purchase a couple of rubber washers to keep the bearings in place as the latter implements are inverted upon set-up, as the washers cushion sharp edges in even little toddlers are about at home.


    My solution was to use a rubber piece to grip the knitting needles as I tightened them onto the cables.

    Question & Answers

    Q:

    Is it possible to combain two or more strings of yarn with this?

    A:

    It can't be used for that, it's used to make yarn cakes out of skeins or hanks.

    Q:

    I don't know if Oz will work with 400 yds yarn.

    A:

    It depends on the type of yarn and how big it is. For lace weight yarn, 400 yds is a little less than 2 ounces and for DK yarn, it should be handled by this winder.

    Q:

    What is the diameter of the yarn's wind section?

    A:

    The base's diameter is 4 1/2 inches and the cylinder's diameter is 1 inch.

    Q:

    There are two different sizes of rubber tips that came free with the winder.

    A:

    The rubber tips are placed at the ends of your knitting needles to keep the yarn from falling off.

    Q:

    Is there a handle option for this? It should be used handheld, meaning is it possible to carry it with you?

    A:

    There is a clamp (see green triangle on long screw under the winder in the photo) that secures the winder to a table or counter.
