Ball Winder To Capacity


To rival the Biggest Ball of Twine somewhere in the middle of the USofA, I thought I would create the biggest ball of Noro Iro. I ripped out the Giganto Clap and thanks to Wonderful Sophie and her Magnificant Ball Winder I was able to avoid a knotty mess. During the knitting of the Giganto Clap, I spit/split-spliced the skeins together so when I was winding it up I didn't notice that the splices weren't coming apart until I got very close to the end. I don't know how, but it all fit. This ball is a total of 360 meters which is 3 skeins. I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to carry it around. It looks like a big hunk of rainbow cheese. Mmmmmmm... cheese.

...and the whatever-you-said about me an' the ball winder sounds like a Roald Dahl story. Arse in yer' FACE, James and your not-so-giant-after-all peach! Nyeah!

Giganto Clap was beautiful. Why'd you rip it out?

That's right, Sophie! We're stickin' it to the man! Peach??! Whatever!

And Sunny, don't worries about the Giganto Clap. What you saw on Wednesday was Perfect Size Clap and I did not rip that out. I just had a little experiment going with the plan of ripping one or both. Luckily for me I just had to rip one. Wee!
