I am floored. It's not even blocked yet and I'm in love. To recap, Wendy's Fir Cone (easy newbie lace) pattern with Melinda's (no-longer-Secret-Pal) handspun. I'm about 1/3 done, and I absolutely don't care what size this ends up. It's breathtaking.
I'm not a person who's terrifically fond of winding yarn, even with my swift and ball winder. This is perhaps mostly because I have dingy hands/wrists and it hurts, but I'm also VERY LAZY. However, when I run out of Ball One of Melinda's yarn, I'll need Ball Two. So I wound it, and while I was at it I also wound the other handspun she sent — the one that is likely to become a little vest for Carson.
I also wound this amazing gift from April:
My first Socks that Rock. April is an April that Rocks, that is for sure! Y'all know how I love green, too.
Through it all I was watched by my fuzzy chocolate darling Laila, who's been rolling in the dirt and is very very dusty.
