My new toy
Into this. Which begs the question, what am I going to do with it now?
But what made me even happier was turning 1200 yards of cobweb weight black thread into this tidy little ball. What you barely see at the bottom of the ball, next to the thread yarn, is a size 0 needle.
Eric snapped a couple of pictures of me winding the black thread (honestly, this stuff is too thin to consider yarn - what was I thinking). Doncha love the improvised swift? After the most recent credit card bill, I will be using this one for quite a while!
Even with the winder it still took more than 20 minutes to wind this ball. But, had I been doing in around my thumb, it would have taken house.
I finished the baby hat and that is going in the sell pile for the craft fair this fall. I know it looks like the umbilical hat from S'n'B but I don't have that book, and have been knitting these since who knows when.
