I am looking for a yarn winder that wont break after a couple uses. A lot of the ones i see on Amazon and Ebay look cheaply made and some of the reviews aren't  the best. What do you guys think? I don't have tons of money otherwise i would just buy a really nice one.

Thanks!!

I can only speak from my experience but I got a Stanwood years ago and it's still chugging along. I think it's this one: http://www.amazon.com/Stanwood-Needlecraft-YBW-A-Hand-Operated-4-Ounce/dp/B004B44PYI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398297064&sr=8-1&keywords=ball+winder

I move a lot too, and he's made all the moves with me. The only thing that's not in perfect shape anymore is the metal ring that holds the yarn for winding. It no longer stands on its own when it gets tugged - it just falls overs. However, it was cheap and has made it much longer than I expected.

Thanks for your reply! I ended up getting one from knit picks and its working great Smiley
