Pretty Yarn Cakes

Here are the first yarn cakes made from my hand-dyed acrylic yarn on my 'new' [secondhand] wool winder which I bought on Ebay from Kate. She was the only seller able to answer my questions about how much yarn the winder would hold and as a knitter, not just a seller, knew how it worked [and that it did work].

For DD and I it was a challenge - we had never used a wool winder before so we had to work out how to put it together, how to make the gears mesh without breaking anything and how to thread up the winder. We've been pretty successful, don't you think?


  1. Oh yes, you've been extremely successful!! And your yarn is so pretty. :)

  2. yep, they look spectacular. Well done! Wool winders are invaluable.

  3. Honey, you've gone crazy with the yarn-cake making! Thanks for the nice feedback. :)

  4. Wow, you have been busy! Love the colours
