It's THAT day. I wouldn't even acknowledge it because I hate it so much, but . . . I did a Valentine's Day swap in a singles group on Ravelry since we feel left out on this day. It was so much fun! I love the stuff I got from my swap partner, she spoiled me.
Look at all that stuff! SWS yarn, I love that stuff! Can't wait to cast on something with it. And goodies galore: colorful stitch markers, darning needles, lip shaped soap, a magnet, AND a candy bar! Thank you Nikki!
I bought this beautiful Cascade 220 yarn not too long ago from an on line store (Sonny & Shear, great customer service!) and finally took it from skein to ball the other night. I do not have a ball winder or a swift, so let me tell you, this was quite the little project. Stupid cats wouldn't help, so I had to do it by myself. I put the skein on my feet to hold it in place, and then started the winding process. It didn't take too long. It turned out like this:
Quite tidy. I'm proud of my little yarn cake. And the color is just gorgeous! I started knitting a pair of mittens called Very Cabley Mittens (pattern on Ravelry). I've gotten this much done so far.
I finally made it through all the cables on the cuff of the first mitten. Look at all those little cables I did.
