Crazy Monkey! A new skein winder arrives.

I ordered something new for the studio in January. Crazy Monkey Creations made me this awesome skein winder. I have wanted one of these for quite awhile. I have been using a niddy noddy to skein yarn and I can tell you that it is just tendonitis waiting to happen... plus it is way too slow.
Here is how it showed up...
And once I got it all put together, the mounds of skeined yarn appear faster than I thought possible.
It has a counter so I no longer have to guess when I have reached a certain number of ounces. It counts for me. The arms are adjustable so I can make different sized skeins and it does three at a time. All beautifully hand-made in Loveland, Colorado.
Here is a little video blog that shows this baby in action.
Seriously, yarn flying around the room.
