Reader, Jack Of All Craft, suggested a different method of winding a hank of wool and it involved … a cardboard toilet roll tube!
I never, ever thought I’d feature bathroom staples at Did You Make That. Just goes to show that I know nothing. I decided to try this alternative method of winding. The cardboard tube helps release tension in the ball and makes the winding process easier.
No words needed for instructions; just follow the photos below.
Now, I need to find something else in the house to use. How bobby pins can be an alternative to pins? (They can!) Why wooden spoons help you turn belt loops. (They do!) What to do with that pile of paperwork that sits on the sideboard, unloved and ignored and sending out its vibes of guilt, until you throw the papers out in a fit of pique? Manure the garden? Answers on a postcard!
Thanks, Jack Of All Craft!
