Wind Yarn with a Hand Mixer


Diamond Post Medal for All Time! 1,246 Posts

Wind Yarn with a Hand MixerI love this because I have a tendency to somehow have loose yarn from my projects all over the place and cannot sit still long enough to ball them back up by hand. Take the empty cardboard from a roll of toilet paper and cut a tiny slit in the end. Put the cardboard on the end of one of your mixer head attachments. Hold the yarn firmly to avoid tangling. Turn the mixer on low. Your yarn will wind up beautifully onto the roll in seconds!

Sounds cool, but in my imagination, I can also see the yarn taking off and getting wrapped around the beater shaft! I've never had a hand mixer, so I'm wondering, is it really possible to run it slowly enough to control the yarn?

It totally works perfectly. The trick is to have that very firm grip on the yarn before you start winding. Never had it tangle once!
