Came across this on eBay and my first thought was that it could be used to hold a ball of yarn, maybe even after winding it onto a toilet roll and then putting the roll on the holder and knitting off it. You know, when you get a hank and wind it into a ball or those hard cotton knitting balls could go on it too. You can remove the springs etc also if you prefer. I just had another thought, if you like to knit when you are a passenger in a car, you could attach it to your window and just knit away. I am going to buy one or two as they are quite cheap in price.
What do you think of this idea?

I like my Yarn-It better. I don't have to wind anything, and it will pull the outside thread no problem, no tangling, no rolling on the floor.

The yarn-it is much more expensive than this winder and I didn't post to do a comparison of other holders, it was just something that I came across and I was thinking outside the box. I like to re-purpose. It's not a 'mine is better than yours' thing. :sm25:

comparing to the size of the hands in the photo... the device will be good for sock yarns or crochet strings. Though if your yarn is not on a bobbin/core you might want to make a couple of disks for the ends of your ball/core of yarn/string.
