Warping Board

Since my warping board has disappeared, I've been warping my yarn for dyeing on my ironing board. Needless to say this takes up a lot of room and isn't exactly ideal. Since I didn't feel like paying $100 for another one, I figured a quick trip to the hardware store was in order. This took me about an hour to assemble, and cost about $20. It's completely adjustable... the only downside is that I can't warp wet yarn or I'll ruin it.

this is very cool! I bet you could spray it with a lacquer clear coat to make it water proof. :) I love our colors, so cheery!

Great idea! How did you attach the dowels?
