The Coolest Thing Ever ~ A Yarn Baller!

Oh my gosh! You cannot see me right now but I am jumping up and down with glee!

My new yarn baller just arrived, and I do not know how I ever lived without one before!

It turns all your skeins of yarn into neatly wound balls with a center pull!

No more little hand wound balls of yarn rolling around the floor while I work!

It is so easy to use and well made. All the gears inside work smoothly and efficiently!

Here is a short video for you to see!

Ta Da!

Fred was laughing at me as I pulled out all of my yarn and wound them into perfect balls in minutes!

I purchased it from Joanns.com with a 50% off coupon that they had advertised with a code on their home page. It is very important to look for their coupon code to enter at checkout otherwise it will be full price!

I think they always have a coupon running although it may not always be at 50% off. You may want to keep checking in to take advantage of that coupon when it reappears. That is exactly what I did, and I saved $30!

UPDATE: I just found another online source for coupons. Check out these Joanns coupons at CouponSeven.com!

I'm tellin' ya, it is the little things in life that are the greatest! :)

Do you have any new fun things that just make your day? Please let me know! I would love to see!

Oh, I so need one of those, I hate the ball winding process. Too bad I didn't know about this a week or so ago, I did see a 50% off coupon in the weekly ad. I am going to keep watch for one again - I really want one of those.

Lucky you! I wish I had a ball winder - even more so now I've seen your video of it in action!

Dear Aunty Melissa,

Being greeted by Pugsley and Lola when I come home from work totally makes my day!! There is nothing better then pug kisses after a long day at work:)

BTW: Joann's ROCKS!! I love to buy scrapbooking supplies from Joann's. Make sure you sign up for their mailer. It always has good coupons in it:)

Melissa, I do not knit, sew or crochet (I have none of these skills) but if I did...like you do, I would surely get one of these...how cool is that!!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Melissa
That is way cool! Hey, mom found one of those those thingys that you made your hats with. She saw it at High School Pharmacy. She did not get it yet. She says she has to stare at something a long time before she gets it.
I bet Fred wishes your yarn baller would roll up extention cords. Mom wishes that,
