I have been swamped with work and sick with a nasty cold, but in the middle of a strange vacation week that I'm spending recuperating, I finally got out the toy I'd purchased in December, a ball winder. None of our tables or surfaces has the right edge for the clamp, so DH thought of putting it on a footstool we have, and then I realized that a tall stool was even better.
I followed the directions, I put my skein on the table swift, I started the whole thing going, and IT WORKED!
First I wound the two skeins of kitty yarn I received last week but was too crazy-busy to post, and they made two lovely "cakes."
Finished: the second Tuscany scarf, requested by my DSM Leone, and to be wrapped and mailed tomorrow. Won't she be surprised?!
Almost finished: the capelet in Lorna's Laces.
Happy knitting, all!
