An older guy at my gym does woodworking as a hobby, and has made a number of things for the gym itself (like coathooks, mat racks, etc.)  and other members. When he heard that I might need something, he came straight over to talk to me. I described yarn cone holders to him on Monday, and today he presented me with two lovely finished products-- one that fits European cones (right), and one that fits the North American ones with slightly wider holes (left). They're really quite nice, and I started using them right away.

One problem... he refused to accept payment. I thanked him profusely and baked him some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

Side note: this is possibly the first time I've ever used the Fitness and Weaving tags at the same time.

That's pretty cool. I bet he has a ton of fun making things but doesn't have projects to work on. He probably also loves making things for people. Win-win all around, methinks!
