Wow! It looks like a funk is sweeping the country! A big thank you to everyone who commented and shared that they too were in a funk and everyone who pointed out that the weather as been especially dreary and yes it really does affect our moods. I’m planning to get plenty of daylight and hopefully sunshine this weekend and I hope you are too! At right – the paparazzi stalked me while I knitted at my second fav coffee shop last night! 🙂
I have a new toy! A ball winder and swift! The swift was a Christmas present and I got the ball winder yesterday! I love it! So easy to use and so much faster and easier than winding by hand! It’s part of the reason I’d put off making Metionable, I coudn’t imagine winding the yarn by hand. I started off winding the new yarn I got (I’m saving it for YPF) then went to my stash looking for yarn to wind. A hand of KnitPick WoA was wound. Then I started looking for the yarn for Mentionable and couldn’t find it. I kept thinking, I left it in the bag, it was sitting right here on this shelf, where could it have possibly gone? I looked and looked, I tore the room apart, I searched the house. Then something occurred to me. Last week in this room there was big empty box sitting near this shelf. I threw trash in it, what if the bag had fallen in there somehow or something? Panic. Lots of panic. The box was still on the porch, I’d forgotten to take trash out on trash day. In fact I’d berated myself for it. I’ve never been so happy I forgot to take the trash out because sure enough, when I looked there it was! My Yarn Botanika bag with my beautiful yarn inside! See that right there on the right?
