If you take a look in my creative space this week you will find yarn, and plenty of it. Especially yarn in skeins, needing to be wound into balls. And this handy item:
Yes, it’s a turkey baster. So what does a turkey baster have to do with yarn, I hear you ask? Well thanks to an excellent post from Salihan Crafts I have discovered the perfect low cost tool to help me wind yarn into balls. You thread one end of the yarn down the centre (after taking off the rubber top, of course) and then wind the yarn around and around the baster. It’s easy to remove when the ball is wound. Thanks so much Salihan for putting me onto such a great idea!
The pink yarn is beautiful sqishy 4 ply merino from Pear Tree Yarn, bought at Stitches and Craft last year to crochet a wrap jacket for Clare. Better get it started ASAP so that I have an excuse to buy some more yarn at this year’s Stitches in a couple of weeks time!
