If you are in the market for a cheap ball winder I found one for less than $30! Here is the link: http://www.discountyarnsale.com/pd_yarn_ball.cfm and the link to the other accessories so you can compare both winders: http://www.discountyarnsale.com/cat_accessories1.cfm Just some FYI!
Yay Shari!!!!! Your Shawl turned out beautiful! You know, mine had a couple of flaws too but unless you study it stitch by stitch you would never know! I love the way the Simply Soft shimmers and drapes and is so silky soft. Good job!
