Weekend stuff
I finished the purple shades sweater. I even blocked it. Its huge, but not too huge. I'm pondering taking it to work and making it the designated sweater for wearing at work.

I went to Mind's Eye Yarns in Porter Square on Saturday to buy size 9 and 10 bamboo circs, and came away with not only the needles, but two skeins of novelty yarn and a swift and ball winder. That set me back a bit in the money department, but I'm sick and tired of winding Silky Wool by hand with the yarn stretched over my knees. Warren thinks that my hand-made center pull balls are much nicer than what the ball winder produces, but it does take a lot less time to use the winder.

We had extra rookies at class on Sunday. We think they came to learn some Tango before the Brown competition next Sunday; perhaps little Phil even suggested that they come. We'll see if any on the new ones stick. I rather doubt they will. Our approach is a little too methodical for those who want a quick fix, and those coming to one class to get their tango fixed before a competition probably aren't going to stick with it.

I agree. The handmade balls I make around a stick are nicer and more compact, thought they do take longer. Laura's crazy umbrella thing to hold the skein of yarn though, was Just the Thing, whether you used the winder or a stick. (I wonder where my stick is, anyway?) I realized the other day that I should have balled up my last couple of skeins before she moved!

Well, you're welcome to come use my new crazy umbrella thing any time you want to, assuming you don't mind hiking two blocks over.
