Another DIY Yarn Winder

I got this idea from another blog.



I pushed a toilet paper tube onto the beater, laid the sweater out flat, turned on the power and guided the yarn along the tube. The mixer not only wound the yarn but unraveled the sleeve at the same time. I was done in no time! The mixer's lowest speed was a little too fast, but it got the job done.

I like this idea also. I almost want to start a project just to try it!!! Almost is the key word!

What takes us so long to think about doing this? When I see it DONE, I feel so stupid for not coming to that same idea! 8-)))

I LOVE this! I'm going to experiment with adding a rheostat (dimmer) to my mixer in order to slow down the rotation.
