Oh, I am so jealous....I had the ball winder in my cart at Joann.com yesterday, with the 50% off coupon ready, then decided to see if I could find it in the store. Man, I am so cheap....I'll probably spend as much in gas to drive the 50 miles to the store and back as I would if I just gave in and paid the shipping. :thinking:

why not call and ask if they have them. Save the trip AND the money you would spend while you are there "just looking!"

Good point Brendajos
Ditto about Silver's kitchen. If I spent even a fraction of the time cleaning my house as I spend on here....my kids would still mess it up. :D

I know, that's why I don't even bother cleaning up till they're in bed... that way I get at least an hour or two at night, and an hour or two in the morning when I can enjoy the clean...

With the coupon code at joann's (earlier in the thread) it's around $24 plus shipping. I think it would be much better than the current method of putting it on the chair. only dilemma is that all of my yarn is currently in a ball- :thinking: but I do have a good size amount coming in from knitpicks that would be perfect for a swift

I usually take my pictures outside in daylight--partly for the light, partly for the mess that is probably in the background!

:rollseyes: That picture can be used for posterity to prove that my kitchen is clean when the kids are at school and hubby's at work. The usual mess is all THEIR fault.

hahahahaha


sorry.. but good luck. I don't know how it is up there, but down here, I think Joann's hires teens(nothing wrong with teens.. but they should at least know what a knitting needle is. ) for after school work. I once sat on the phone for 25 minutes, trying to find out if they had a certain needle set in stock... I can't tell you how many times I was passed around, told to hold, and forgotten. I gave up and just ordered it online from knitting-warehouse.
