Yarn winder – a must or else you have….

Blog - 2016 008

Yup, that was my Thursday night after being impatient and attempting to start a project without using my yarn winder.  I love the look of a hank of yarn before it’s wound.  The shape reminds me of the infinity symbol, representing endless possibilities of what can be created.  I bought two hanks of Cascade Yarns Venezia (sport weight) – it’s a beautiful, soft merino wool and silk blend – my post-holiday splurge.  It begs for knitting needles!

Now, had I just attached the winder to my kitchen counter, this would have been the initial result….

Now doesn’t that look more civilized!

My guy is a saintly man, promising to help me sort out my pile of yarn disaster before I use up my current ball.  It reminds him of sorting out fishing line! Bless him!

Hopefully in a short time, this lovely yarn will be a beautiful, soft, knit shrug.   I’ll be sure to post pictures once completed!

Happy knitting and hooking all! 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’m hoping it won’t take too long to finish. I think the winder is such a great investment. I used to wind by hand and it took forever, so definitely a plus for time and keeping the yarn under control. 🙂
