Good presents

I received my birthday present from Chris yesterday. A ball winder and a skein holder. They are brilliant. So quick and much less swearing.

Very useful tool for any knitter - much much easier than round the knees! I thought you'd have trained the "little banshees" to stand still and hold your yarn for you!!

great gadget and wonderful jewel colours too. Did you dye the red/orange ball?

Did I miss your birthday? or is this an early present?
"Happy Birthday" anyway....
Great present... wasn't it the spinning wheel last year? You'll be set now....

Great present. I love my ball winder, I just need to buy a swift now so I dont make my family stand there holding the skeins.

I never even knew I needed one of these until I saw your photo. That will go on my wish list directly!

Great present. This is just what I want too. Have nearly bought them many times, but maybe I just have to wait for my birthday - in October...
Belated Happy Birthday.
