...but obviously not posting much. The good news is that a pretty shiny new laptop is on the way. A couple of weeks and I will be back to semi-normal here.
Skacel, the people who brought us Addi Turbo needles, has something new that I can't wait to try. They are called addi FlexiFlips. Imagine a cross between a dpn and a circular needle. You put half of your stitches on one needle, half on a second, and you knit with the third. I can't get a link to the exact page, but you can find them at www.skacelknitting.com.
I got a new ball winder recently. If they make yarn cakes, why don't the call them cake winders? Anyway, I am happy with it. I was using a used Royal which was a guaranteed to tangle and was a total nightmare. I can see why the person sold it. The new one is by Stanwood Needlecraft and I got it from Amazon. It is much sturdier and will handle bigger skeins and thicker yarns.
