YOP: Post 1 - New Year!

Yesterday I wound 32 skeins into cakes....see in order to make the cakes, I have to set up the swift and ball winder..it's a bit of a production...so when I set it up, I wound for as many projects as I can...some of the yarn is spoken for, some not yet...but it is there when I need to pull the yarn out to start something. I had some tea with my cakes!






I finished a Christmas gift, I have two more to make...and I still have 6 hats to make.....


It is cold here, the coldest it has been in 10 years...I haven't left the house in two days, and aren't planning to leave today...so I'll get at least one hat done....

I have cleaned up my list, took the frogged items off.....I have a finished hat, that I will be frogging, as the yarn I chose is too drappy for a hat...I bought some yarn on the first to make another..

So I'll put that yarn back into the scarf project it was for originall,

I'm sure I will add to this list, but it is the basic list that I have carried over....hopefully I'll get more done off this list....but I know Nerd Wars always adds projects to my finished tally.

That is SMART to wind up skeins all in one session. I get so lazy sometimes, before starting a new project because I have to wind up yarn.

I wind the yarn only when I'm ready to cast on. Because if I wound it before, I'm pretty sure I'd come down with a terrible case of startitis! Are you really making a Dr Who scarf? I know people who would love that, but I think I may be too lazy :)

I loved seeing all the cakes and what a good idea your now ready to just whizz through your list.

Ooooh! So much pretty yarn! It's crazy, with us (the Netherlands) it's been the opposite: warmest winterday in about 100years! I can understand you're not going outside, just enjoy the warm inside and being with your lovely yarn!

I wound one skein this week by hand and it took one evening! Good for you! I'm still I'm still making Christmas presents too but since I changed it to "The 12 months of Christmas" instead of the 12 days, I feel much better. What fun now to just go grab a cake and start knitting. You go girl!
