Madrona Treasures, Part 2

Do you know what this is?

I bought it at Madrona, so I can do this:

Pretty cool, huh? I'm hoping this little doohickey will make it easier to knit two strands together. You use it with center pull balls but obviously unwinding from the outside. The top tier, which is attached to the spindle, spins quite easily. You can pull straight from the skeins, or unwind the yarn a little bit at a time. I'm still getting used to it, trying to make sure it doesn't change my tension, so for now I just pull small lengths of yarn as I need it. I'll try knitting straight from the skeins on my next new project.

It's from Chameleon Colorworks, but I don't see it on their website. If you're interested, maybe send them an email.

But wait! There's more...


  1. This is like the 12 Days of Christmas, JelliDonut-style.

  2. I am really enjoying the Madrona Treasures series! That is a very cool tool. I might even consider twining again with something like that! :)

  3. Yes, I knew right away what it was. Great buy!!

  4. Okay, about this Madrona Treasure series, don't let it end. It's fun ! -- No, I had no idea what it was and I consider myself one of the queens of doohickies !!!

  5. Ok, that is too cool! Makes me want to knit some colorwork just so I have an excuse to buy one, lol!

  6. Isn't great!! It is just like my Yarn Susan (http://seducedbyyarn.blogspot.com/2011/02/yarn-susan.html)
    I haven't tried it with two different colors but it does sound like it would be good for that!

  7. So am I the only one who thought it has an...um, interesting...look?

  8. Ann--ha ha ha! I doubt it. Must say, I giggled when I uploaded the photo.
