There was one little problem though... I don't have a ball winder, or a swift for that matter. And to top it off I couldn't find my beat stick. I mean my Notespinne. So I grabbed a knitting needle and a willing soul and created something that worked quite nicely.
I call this video: Necessity is the Mother of Invention. Or Child Labour is Great. Or My 7 year old rocks. Or... Well, yeah. You get the idea. He was actually having fun doing this with me! I no longer have to enlist my husband, who admittedly does it willingly, but imagine! I could get 2-3 skeins wound in a day if I had two helpers!
I've also got this lurvely Jacob yearling ewe fleece that I plan to spin, and hopefully knit up during the games... We'll see how it goes...
Once the games are over, it's all homework all the time time... Because I will not repeat last year! Will not!
Let the count down begin!
