Along with the freshly budded trees outside my window, is the freshly wound yarn for a spring project. Here it lingers in the soft morning light -
Besides winding yarn, I’ve been winding up a new design and surprisingly (or not?) it’s sequed into another version, in another yarn, with a slightly different look…
[In fact, I have yet another yarn for a version three but alas! Two-handedness is my flaw.]
Not only can I not knit fast enough lately, I can’t wind fast enough!
And, it’s a funny thing – yarn in skeins.
I have to get into the mood to wind. [Does this] happen to you?
Maybe it’s because I don’t have a “station” that can be visited 24/7 and have to build it anew each session.
But, really, I think it’s just because I’m so ready to get to the knitting, it’s a diversion that I’d rather skip!
It’s kind of an “eat your vegetables” kind of thing too – even though it’s better for the yarn to be wound not too far in advance of use (if not commercially wound), it still seems like D.U.T.Y.
Right now I’m more like the Kid in the Candy Store and just want to stuff my face!
