I'm having fun with my new, spinning yarn holder!
It even works with a ball of Sugar 'n Cream yarn.
The yarn pulls out easily and doesn't get tangled or roll around.
This is a pretty ball of yarn from my stash. The color is, "Barnwood Twist". I love that name! I started a dishcloth yesterday afternoon and had it finished by last night. I started another one at breakfast. It looked so pretty with my red placemat and even the strawberries in my oatmeal. I just had to post it on Instagram and I thought I'd share it here too. :-)
I've made so many of these over the years. I love making them and I love using them. And, I love that I can get exactly two from a two ounce ball of yarn. I cast 36 stitches onto size eight needles and knit five rows. Then, on wrong side rows, I knit the first three, purl across, and knit the last three. On right side rows, I knit all the way across. When the center, stockinette part, is equal in width and height, I knit four rows (I'll double check that on this one) and then bind off to get three ridges on the top to match the three at the bottom. I know I've done it right when the new cloth weighs about an ounce and so does what's left on the ball. :-)
