Yesterday, I had to make an emergency visit to Downtown Yarns to pick up a Royal Ball Winder. Yes, it’s true, I do already own a Simplicity Boye Electric Yarn Ball Winder. But I got a last minute call for some freelance work that would require a whole lot of yarn winding on short notice. (Like almost 2.5 pounds of yarn worth of winding.) I thought there was a good chance my neighbors would kill me if I ran the electric winder after getting home from work at 9. I wish I could tell you more about what I’m working on, but I’m supposed to keep things under wraps until the agreed upon moment for the big reveal.
I will mention that I’m working with Kollabora, a new and awesome online maker community. If you haven’t heard of Kollabora, definitely check out the site and their blog. Be aware that the “Knitting” community includes both knitting and crocheting. (Crochet Concupisence had a great post about crocheters being welcomed by “knitting” entities last week, by the way.) I’ll probably be online less than usual this weekend, since I’ll be feverishly knitting and crocheting… A quick reminder: Crocheters, join in my Ripple Mania CAL! Check out this post for more details.
