I finally got a chance to try it out. Bigger on the inside has yarn that’s in balls that don’t need winding, but I wanted to have another skein with me for the laceweight cardigan in case I manage to knit a buttload on the plane to California. (Assuming I get to bring it on the plane; I’ve unscrewed my needles so that if I run into any vigilant security officers, I’ll just sigh, toss the tips and replace them later.) So I pulled the station into the middle of the room and gave it a whirl.
That is to say, I wound a few cranks and then asked P very nicely if he would do the rest because I need to take a shower. But still. Yay!
