Making 'cakes'

I’ve been looking for a yarn swift and ball winder for a while now, and have finally found one at last. My yarn winder arrived in the post yesterday and this morning after chores I finally managed to get my hands on it and have a go!!!

I’ve yet to find a ‘bargain’ swift, so I’m just using the back of one of the kitchen chairs. It works quite well as long as the skein had been wound well in the first place and provided I keep the length of yarn taut as I’m winding.

 I wound up three skeins of my Shilasdair yarn ready for my new purse colour work design. Then I decided to do a skein of Araucania Botany Lace, when our stock delivery came I liked it so much I took a skein in ‘payment’ for all my recent hard work, it’s gorgeous.

I love the way the yarn looks when it’s wound, the diamond pattern is lovely. It is such a lovely day today that I took some more photos of yarn outside. My little boy wanted a photo of his knitted fish.

I love the way the yarn ‘cakes’ look. I can’t wait to knit with them. I’m now fully immersed in crafting today, my baby girl’s been asleep for about 4hrs so I’m sure I’ll have to stop soon.
