How to make a center-pull ball (without a yarn winder)
I put together a picture tutorial on my blog on how to make a center-pull ball using paper towel tube. Just thought I would post it in it's own thread to make it more visible for those that want to learn and don't want to spend money on a yarn winder. It's a great alternative if you only have a few skeins/hanks to wind or don't need to wind yarn all the time. Hope someone finds it helpful.
Recent FO:Damask just needs a handle and some waxed cording.
3 pair of clogs
OTN: Wonderful Wallaby for dd(on hold)
Pigeldy done but needs to be seamed and felted
Thorne market bag
Clogs (to replace shawls)
In line to be cast on:Clogs (2 more pair)
scarf for ds
cat scarf for ds#2
2 booga bags
That's really great of you to do. I'm going to have to check out your tutorial and that technique. I did it for the first time a couple of months ago on my fingers, and have to say I was almost as proud of my first center pull ball as I was of my first scarf!
