Yarn Barf

This is what I am working on today.


Why oh why do people insist on selling me yarn in skeins? I am hopeless with them. The yarn is absolutely gorgeous though.

In other news, I have finished a project.  Pics to follow when it has finished blocking.  And I have just purchased a vintage yarnwinder thingamajig on Ebay at vast expense.

    Could you not find a spare pair of arms/hands to assist with the winding of the yarn? I remember when I was younger, my aunts would get me to hold my arms out and plonk a skein of yarn over my outstretched hands. I’d have to make a kind of rolling action so that the yarn could be wound more easily. Or maybe that was child labour.

    I did borrow the Husband’s arms briefly but we were halfway through when he remembered an important previous engagement. I buy most of my yarn online – I just don’t really understand why yarn isn’t just sold in balls?
