Stop The Presses: Industrial Revolution Reaches HCW!!

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's something from an NC-17 movie!! Oh wait, no it's not. It's our new electric ball winder!

That's right, folks. After who knows how many years of using that old hand-crank ball winder-- recommended by four out of five Luddites!-- to roll skeins of yarn into balls, Suzanne has, at long las, swung open the front door wide and welcomed in the Industrial Revolution! Technically this handy little gadget saves time. Only right now it doesn't, because when you're standing there using it, either you feel compelled to grab a passerby to discuss its amazing awesomeness, or a passerby feels compelled to stop and demand to know what in the heck that thing is.

I tested it out myself last week and, I gotta say, much as I do love the feel of that old hand-crank, this new little number is pretty darn neato. Come on and try it yourself-- you'll have a ball, we promise. (Get it-- Have a ball?! I am so funny.)
