My mom got me my very own yarn swift + winder woohoo! (And of course she snuck in a ball of sock yarn). I had a little trouble putting the swift together, but with some help from the engineer in the house… we got it together. Tested it out today, and it works perfectly! Way easier than winding yarn by hand!!

2012-12-31_17-03-28_518The yarn is made by three irish girls and is called something like “holidays on ice?” Its a larger ball of green-red-pink yarn and then a smaller ball of ice blue. It’s made of merino + nylon. It looks very pretty all wound up. I think I would rename this yarn something like “elf puke” though 😉  (Sorry for the poor lighting)
