Today started out by taking Ginger (my English Cream Golden) to the vet for her 6 month checkup. She didn't like it at all. When they took her into the building she was a bundle of nerves. Poor girl.
When I got back I had 4 skeins of seed fingering yarn I needed to wind. I got out my yarn swift and ball winder and got to work. I find winding yarn very therapeutical! You almost get mesmerized by watching the yarn swift go round and round. Here are a few photos of the process.
|These are the 4 skeins of yarn from Heidiandlana that needed to be wound. The pink is called Sugar Cookie and the green is Evergreen. This is Seed Fingering weight yarn. I love their yarn!!|
|The is the skein of yarn on the yarn swift. You put it on here first and then thread it onto the ball winder (see the ball winder below) and that makes a "cake" of yarn for your project.|

Well I'm off to knit another Harry Potter hat for my grandson. My daughter, Jenny home schools them and one of the curriculum she is teaching to the 2 grandsons is Harry Potter based. I'm making 3 hats (one for each grandson and 1 for Jenny). They also would like scarves to make. I'll post them when I get them all done.
Everyone have a wonderful day!!
