Psst! Rossana! Would it kill you to post to your blog?
I’d been wondering about the Woolee Winder and when Ann got one for her birthday a little while back, I was able to get a firsthand opnion of it. So I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and it arrived last week.
It works great, and I love it. It really is amazing the difference it makes not having to stop and move the little pinchie thingie on the Lendrum to wind the yarn on the bobbin evenly. The Woolee Winder does that for you, smoothly and easily. The winder comes with one bobbin, and I ordered three more with it, for a total of four.
What’s that on the wheel?
It’s one of Spinderella’s thrums, which I bought a couple of months ago. I have a total of 8 ounces of this color, which is sort of an iced mint green. It’s great fun to spin.
I finished the green socks.
I wore them Saturday and they were very comfy. I washed them this afternoon (machine wash and dry) and they came out looking just fine.
I started a new sock, of course.
This is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, in the Spanish Moss colorway. I love this yarn. It reminds me of the Socks That Rock yarn in how it feels and knits up. I am once again knitting using my size 0 needles.
I’ve gotten a number of comments and emails asking why I’m not going anywhere other than the places listed in my sidebar on my book tour. Remember, I am not the one who chooses where I go — that’s up to my publisher. They have a budget for publicity and are, of course, trying to get as many appearances as they can for what they have to work with.
Now if the book sells fabulously and we make a pile of money, there’s a very good chance I’ll be out on tour again!
Please note, also that I’ve amended my Maryland Sheep & Wool visit — I’ll be there on Saturday the 6th only, not Saturday and Sunday.
Why I Need a Keeper
I was mentioning to the King of All Remote Controls the other day that I thought it was funny that the remote for my new fan controls several functions, but to turn the fan on or off, you have to use the control on the fan itself.
King of All Remote Controls pointed out to me, very gently, that the big button in the center of the remote control was the on/off button. You know, the one with the universal on-off symbol on it?
Lucy is mortified.
