We dreamed of a time when yarn would feed smoothly so that we could knit row after row without tugging, pulling, or untangling. Then, we realized that we could just re-envision a classic yarn caddy / Lazy Susan concept and create a flat-packable device that can sit and rotate on any quarter-inch shaft, including our Lazy Kates and Simple Kates. Tensioned with our patent-pending TensiTamer gizmo, the yarn feed rate is controlled--or not, if that's your preference! We'd say more, but we've already returned to our knitting….
Akerworks: We like making things.
