So I just got back from the local yarn store where I stopped in to use their swift to ball up a few skeins of yarn that were sent to me for custom orders… Oh my goodness! They got a new toy – an all wooden, electric ball winder. It was magical! All you had to do was get the yarn situated in the winder and then flip the switch. Just like magic!
Not sure if this is the exact model they had, but it looked pretty much like this:
On another note, I finished those longies that I’ve been working on. I’ll post a pic as soon as I can get a good one. They look great!
I’m also almost finished with a baby blanket that I’ve been designing for a friend who just had her sweet baby last weekend… a little girl named Fiona Rose. Such a sweet name. I think I’m going to call it the “Fiona Rose Baby Blanket”. Will post photos of the blanket too as soon as I get good ones.
