Wind, wind, wind
It's that time of year again, time to wind the yarn for this year's installment of the Sock Club's self-patterning sock yarn. With some input from Guido, I've been cooking up a better way to wind the yarn. If you remember last year, the system I set up involved about two hours of walking the length of the shop over and over again (with the help of the lovely and talented Katie) in order to make a 50' skein of yarn. Since I have over twice as much yarn to wind this year, I'm in need of a better system. I'm on my way to the hardware store in search of some PVC pipe to make something equivalent to a warping frame. I'll keep you posted on what I come up with!
