Woo Hoo, another gadget! OK, so maybe you could live without it...but, I think it's a great idea for knitting or crocheting with finer coned yarns.

I wish they'd made the base as attractive as the spindle.

I see a DIY project here for under $12! I mean, come one, it is an old chair leg on a lazy susan base. Woodworkers of the forum, unite!



Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I don't think it has a "lazy susan" kind of base. It's the metal disk/cap that sits on top of the silicone base at the top of the spindle that makes the cone itself turn easily. I'm also guessing that fitting the cone over the top of that metal cap makes for a nice snug fit that keeps the cone from wobbling and accommodates different sized cones.

A spindle would wobble on a lazy susan base unless the cone perfectly fit the spindle, limiting it's effective use to one size cone.

There are lots of other devices you can use to work easily with coned yarns, but this one appeals to me for knitting or crocheting while sitting on a sofa or sitting at a table,. It's portable, it's reasonably attractive and it's reasonably priced.
