Wow! How does it work? Can you knit from the skein while it is on there? :-)

Of course!! That's what they are for ... I have been able to use both skeins that pull from the center and ball/cakes that pull from the outside (outside works better, but both are fine). That way you don't have your yarn flopping around on the couch, the chair, the floor, etc. Stays in place and keeps me happy. The lazy susan is on ball bearings that spin as you pull the yarn.

Thanks ... I might get him to make some more if anyone is interested. I don't want to take away business from rmoffett, as he is the one who gave us the instructions to make them. Of course my husband (as most men do), put his own 'spin' on it to make the design his own. He did put a larger base so they don't tip over and one of them has a removeable spindle to accomodate taller/larger skeins of yarn. Anyway, let me know if you are interested.

Wow, after seeing these, I wonder if you could use a heavy based paper towel holder from Bed & Bath? Don't have a hubby that is handy at woodworking!

You could if the base itself spins ... most of the paper towel holders I recall seeing don't spin. The only one I saw that might work was almost $35. I wasn't about to pay that ... and I still don't have a paper towel holder .. hahaha

welll, i must brag on myself. after seeing ones similar to these on kp a while back, i decided i could make one. i am a lot more "handier" than DH. bought the disc at hoblob, purchased dowl in appropriate size, searched the net for the lazy susan part. had to get step son to drill holes for for me w/his drill press. took me awhile on the first one, as i was overthinking, it as i usually do things. anyway, i
made 4, gifted one, sold one, and i use 2. plan to make at least 3 more. would llke to find someone locally to cut the disc for me as i would like them a little larger. i really like using them. pretty proud of myself.

Nice to have such a talented man. Mine (RIP) just took a square piece of wood and put a long screw in the center of the square. Then I could put on a crochet thread ball, a cotton yarn ball onto the screw. They yarn would feed off he spool as I needed the tarn. Think I could do the same thing on a bigger scale for larger skeins of yarn.Your hubby's so smart.

I have a friend whose husband lost his job and started making some for a knitting shop. I purchased one for $45.00. Don't know where you live but if you are interested you might have to pay shipping.
