So I was thinking of getting the Knitpicks yarn meter:

Does anyone have it? do you like it as much as you thought you would? I always buy things that look cool but they end up sitting in the closet :doh:

Do you often have occasion to wonder how much yarn is in a ball? Really?

A spinner friend has one for when she winds her hanks, but I've never seen a real need for one. :shrug:

KK was saying that she wanted one for those little balls of sock yarn she has left over after making socks... I think I might get her one (I can say that here b/c I don't think she checks the gen forum very often :teehee: )

personally I'd just buy the meter part and figure out a way to mount it myself :D
