After.. I received my ball winder from my sister today. I had her come home from work (where she had it shipped) so that I could start using it. She's flying out to the bay area tonight--luckily she was going to come home before she headed out the the airport. :) Now I just need a swift. She was my swift as I wound my first ball of yarn. It was so much fun. I absolutely love it and wish that I had gotten one sooner!!! My order from Joann's got here today as well so not only can I wind my yarn into balls for my thermal but I can actually start it now! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been dying to just sit and knit for a while and that's definitely what I'll be doing for @ least part of this weekend. :) I need to get all my packages together to be shipped next week. My package for my fcs2 partner is pretty much ready to go out. I just need to write a lil note about myself and what not. My puffy for my stitchmarker and friendship cloth exchange is nearly ready--it's just missing the dishcloth and the stitchmarkers! lol. But neither should take too long. I'm nearly halfway through with the hobnail dishcloth. I joined a couple of swaps at swap-bot too! One of them I'm really intrigued by and it's the squashed penny exchange. lol. I just recently started to really keep track of the squashed pennies that I've collected in the last year and this swap that I joined actually listed a link that shows you where you can make a squashed penny almost anywhere in the US!!!!!!! I plan to go to a few of the places that aren't too far from me and pick up a few for myself and for the swap!
Okay, I need to get back to winding! lol.
