With the first commission I completed, I bought a ball winder. I am contemplating getting a yarn swift with my earnings from my next 2 commissions. The ball winder is fantastic but my 3 yr old daughter doesn’t have the strength or attention span to be my own personal yarn swift. (Poor kid starts out ok with bother her arms straight out, but after a time she lets both arms fall lifting one or the other as I pull the yarn off. It isn’t long after that before she decides she can’t do it anymore.)
So, suggestions on what to look for? I’d love to hear them.
I see that my knitpicks yarn has made it to my city, so I am waiting with bated breath. Yeah, seriously, actual bated breath. My needle order has LEFT Ohio so it still has some time to go but I am a bit less concerned about that. I just want that pretty yarn!
Seems like I go for long periods of time when I don’t have any finished objects then all of a sudden there are a bunch at once. That is happening now. There were 2 hats and a pair of socks in quick succession, and today as I looked at the entrelac scarf I am making for my mom, I realized I better wrap it up pretty quick or I will be out of yarn completely. So that should be finished this weekend too! Time to start casting on a bunch more projects right? I have about 3 just itching to get started.
