I've been knitting for about 4 years now. I've improved, I've learned, I've tried new things, I've frogged, I've KIP-ed, and I'm quite pleased with my hobby. Tonight, it seems to have taken on a whole new feeling.
I've got myself a swift and ball winder! I wound a skein as soon as I had it out of the box and assembled (the yarn, by the way is Blue Sky Alpaca white / bluesky to make a ruffled scarf from Mac & Me which I bought at a recent trip to the Village Sheep in New Milford) - excellent!
I was so excited bouncing around showing my husband and the dog, that I couldn't find the center pull bit and panicked for a moment that I would have to re-wind the ball!!
I'm one of the cool kids now baby.
