All Wound Up-Sideways

I have spent the better part of a morning trying to figure out how to post a video, so I could show a newbie knitting friend how I wound up her skeins and turned them into these cute little yarn cakes. It's loads of fun but requires too much equipment for a quick lunch break meet-up.

I can't get the video to play right side up no matter what I do, so I apologize for all the head turning that needs to happen in order to see it straight. I swear, the thing is playing great off the desk top but looks pretty terrible here. The howling cat soundtrack is another issue all together.



  1. The yarn cakes look very lovely. Your cat made a great background music in the video clip. ^.^
    How long did it take to make a skein into a yarn cake with this tool, I wonder? Your hand must be very tired after three yarn cakes are done.Thank you so much!!!

  2. It only takes a few minutes. I think it's lots of fun so it's too bad I don't get to do it very often. That's why I volunteered my services so quickly!
