me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

High-Tech me, Mavis

That's right ... my new swift and winder came in the mail today!

I waited only long enough to put on my home uniform (sweats, baby!), pour a glass o' vino, and then I plowed right in! I even set it up at the kitchen table so I could (in theory) make dinner whilst I was winding.

Also in the box was my "Becky" pattern and Touche yarn, so that's where I started winding. Let me tell you, this thing is WAY cool.

Knit'Nat, send your skeins on down here ... I'll have it all wound up in a snap -- no charge -- really!!

Anyone else out there need some yarn wound? ... Please?

Yea, that's me, Mavis sounding like a damn ADDICT!

P.S. to Vegan Knitter: Thanks so much for the heads up on the Lentil Soup from Vegan Planet. It was really great; much heartier than I anticipated, and I'm sure I'll be making it again and again.

P.S. to no one in particular ... don't I look like Harry Potter in this picture? ... or is it the wine ...

    Glad to be of service, my dear, althoug the lentil soup I made is from the Vegan Mediterranean Kitchen. However, that prompted someone else to suggest the one from Vegan Planet, so I guess I was the middle-woman.

    I am about to order a ball winder although I can't currently afford the swift. (I have a $25 gift certificate that I'll use for the winder.) I really need one because so far all my projects have been made from whole skeins, which is no fun.

    Mavis you look absolutely OBSESSED!! Wild woman. :-) (PS- Lentils? Ew. I am not a lentil fan -- don't like their texture. But glad you liked the soup!)
