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...
