Delving deeper into dyeing yarn has been a painful experience! On my back, that is - winding skeins and balls by hand is not only time consuming but doesn't agree with my easily aggravated back.
I made an agreement with myself that if my last 2 skeins of dyed yarn sold, I would buy some tools. They did sell :) So I now have a yarn swift.
And a ball winder. Watching the swift and winder working together for the first time is like magic!
I bought them from Petlins and their service was perfect.
I'm really pleased to see my yarn re-skeined, it shows off the colours better and gives a more even wind, hence a tidier appearance.
Oh, did I mention these 2 hanks are available for sale? You can head to my Madeit shop if you're interested.
I'm hoping to have time to dye some new skeins over the next few days and I may just be drawing inspiration from the Limestone Coast and redback spiders! Sound interesting?
