An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling
I quite like rolling skeins into balls by hand. I like the feel of the wool and winding this way and that to get a neat ball. But it's very time consuming. With a lot of skeins to wind, it makes much more sense to set up the skein holder and ball winder:
When all goes well, a skein winds into a ball in a couple of minutes. But some skeins become very muddled during the dyeing process and untangling them can be tedious and time consuming, whatever method you use. I still have more spinning to do for my blanket, but all the dyeing is done and that wool now rolled into balls, ready to crochet.
