would be a good idea to supply a STL for the leg supports please

What a great idea! thanks for sharing

I'm curious, does your wife use a knitting machine? My wife has one and we are having a hard time finding yarn that comes on a cone. The skeins don't work well with knitting machines because the yarn gets pulled off of them to fast and the skein flops around. I like your idea of winding the yarn onto my empty spools, then putting the wound spool on a spool holder. But I'm thinking that because the knitting machine can pull the yarn pretty fast the spools would just continue to spin, thus making a big mess of yarn as it spins off. I might be able to come up with some sort of spool tensioner that would prevent this from happening. I was just curious if you have come across this problem as well. Thanks. =)
