Seeing as I missed WIP Wednesday, I thought I would get them both in today. I took the tube sock on our trip to Connecticut last weekend and finished it Saturday morning. I didn't bring any other yarn so I had no choice but to cast on for the 2nd sock. The colors of the two look so different. I had 2 skeins. Both with the same lot number. I guess they just got wound up different. Well.. they are socks.
This is my new toy that arrived today. I have been wanting a swift and ball winder for the longest time. I just didn't know what to get. The ball winder is a jumbo one and can wind skeins up to 8 oz. A lot of the ones I found only held up to 4 oz. So 2 of the balls on the table I had wound by hand and redid. The 3rd one, I had to use the swift. OMG! It is the best thing since sliced bread.
I am going to get off as we are getting a bad thunder storm and not sure if we'll lose electricity or not. Sometimes we do.. sometimes we don't. One never knows.
Until next time...
