I am sort of proud of myself this week... or rather last week. I finished several projects that I had been neglecting. A pair of slippers for Julian and two baby blankets for a brand new set of twins (Ryan Lee & Haylie Lynn. Born on Friday, October 19, 2012). The new Daddy has promised pics soon.

Usually, when I make baby blankets I will rewind the yarn into cakes or large center pull balls. I have been a bit apprehensive about unwinding so much yarn into a bowl or container prior to knitting on the USM, but this time I decided I would be brave and I am sooooo glad I did! The knitting went so much faster than having to stop and pull out enough yarn to make a row. Now, I am looking for a line stripper  to make the process even smoother...


  1. Just found your blog via the Facebook page. I had never thought of doing that. Definitely going to have to try it.

  2. I found this to be especially helpful with the larger skeins of yarn.
