I had to stand while winding the skeins, but it worked. Take your unused Lazy Susan, turn a bar stool upside down on it and viola! Yarn Swift. I got quite the looks from my family today. Always keep them guessing within an inch of your sanity I always say. Here's the yarn all skeined and ready to knit.
I dyed this myself by the way. Got the idea over at Crankygrrrrrl's.
