Clouds Dissapate

Sailing season has started; this means less time available for yours truly to knit. I do miss it, but I am out of the house early and home late, worn and washed from sun and sea. It has been almost a week since I put needle to yarn and what’s worse I am not sure where my needle case is. Personally I blame the needle gremlins. On the plus side sweetie bought me some lovely yarn from "Aussi Wools" in a dark green Mallard color. I am ready to start my vest except I have to roll the skeins. Every time I try to wind the yarn rebels and tries to run away. I will eventually get on it, but the yarn (worsted weight doubled) knits up quite nicely; it was suggested that I swatch for a large slightly shaped project. Off to look for my needle case and motivation. I put some of my more attractive yarns in a large vase on my coffee table; it is cheaper than flowers, looks good and is a constant source of encouragement. I also have two exceptionally nice balls of Alchemy Bamboo in the Dragon colorway that are crying for a nice project, I haven’t found it yet though. Suggestions?

Knitting (in mind if not in body) in the Bronx.

I'm sure it's the needle gremlins, though they don't normally take motivation as well as needles.

hmmmmmm- what to do with two skeins of Alchemy bamboo?

Why not send them to the FingerLakes - I'm sure they would love it.

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

What??? You don't have a swift? Or a ballwinder??? I'm amazed -- those are basics!! Get a ballwinder at least; you'll never regret it.
