Cocoon Winder Thingie

Age has crept up and smak'd me in the joints! So I am always interested in ways to avoid situations that puts stress on them (yep I am aware that my grammar is wonky). I prefer to "cocoon" my yarn instead of rolling the yarn into a ball which always seems to get away from me. A cocoon will sit where I want it to and rarely knots up. I've been knitting many a scarf over the past few weeks as gifts for the grands' teachers, bus drivers, and Big Daddy's staff members. I have fallen for a yarn that I found at Hobby Lobby called Espais A Colorfusion Yarn. There is simply too much of it to wind a cocoon the old-fashioned way (around the hand) so Big Daddy made me a DIY winder.
