Uma pergunta: onde posso encontrar um dobador de novelos (ou como quer que se traduza ball winder)? Escrevo mais em pormenor na parte em inglês.
Quem souber onde posso encontrar um não muito caro, por favor escreva nos comentários.
A question: where can I find a ball winder which is not too expensive? I was thinking about my stash, and suddenly the thought of winding thousands of metres of yarn into yarn balls alone, without any kind of mechanical help, doesn't sound so appealing. I mean, I usually wind my yarn by hand alone. I stretch the skein in the feet of a chair (I drop the chair in the floor or over my bed) and wind it by hand. But I would prefer to wind faster so that I would have more time to knit. I have seen small (I don't have much free space, so this is important), portable electric ball winders which make very nice yarn balls in other knitter's blogs. I would hold the skein in my arms and the ball winder would make the job faster and better than me.
EDITED TO ADD: I have checked and all ball winders I find are mechanical and non-electrical. Well, so it seems I must continue to use the chair method...
If you know where can I find it, preferably in Europe, please write in the comments. If you know the price, please write it too.
