Too Much Fun
I had a very good time using my new toys on that clown colored yarn. The first time however, I got carried away and ended up with a pretty little yarn cake that was hopelessly tangled in the center. I discovered this only after knitting a few inches on that ill fated Surf Scarf. To the frog pond it went as I spent a good half hour or so trying to untangle the big mess. I had to re-skein it and them put it back on the swift. The trick to the ball winder is to NOT proceed if things get in the least bit wonky or YOU WILL BE SORRY. All in all, the whole thing is way too much fun. I have visions of winding up stuff just for the sake of winding. It's that much fun.
