Knitting in Round Poll

I am curious. A friend asked me if I would show her how to do The Magic Loop. She wants to show her daughter in law, a new enthusiastic knitter who wants to try socks, and couldnt figure it out.

My First Project is Evolving.

My first project is evolving. After learning the purl stitch, my garter stitch scarf has begun to evolve. The garter stitch transitions to a band of seed stitch, then moss stitch.

I am a cherry tree in my backyard that I am taking down. I am willing to provide lots of cherry wood to anyone who would like such.

Eureka! Moment

So, I have been debating the whole ball winder dilemna, I didn't want to spend $50.00 on a winder, and I didn't want the super cheap winder either. Lightning struck, I had an idea!

Couldn't resist it but dont' t know what to do with it

I found this stuff in a little shop in Jerome, AZ. It's silk fibers that have been swept up at a silk mill in Nepal and then spun into yarn.
