Knitter's Review
August 25, 2005

merino al dente Last week I showed how you can use a niddy noddy to determine how much yarn is in your leftover skeins.

But this technique requires that you unwind the entire skein in the process. What if you don't want to go to all that trouble?

There's another tool you can try. It's a little plastic device called a McMorran Yarn Balance, and we review it this week.


More Cheap Yarn Finds
Back in 2000 I published an article about where to find inexpensive yarns online. So much has changed since then that I decided to revisit—and completely update—the article. Learn where and how to find good yarns online today without breaking the bank.
