EOY Needles December 27, 2013

I treated myself to a swift and winder on Black Friday.  I purchased them from KnitPicks at a nice discount.  I thought it wasn't a big thing to wind balls by hand but this is nice-especially since my husband did most of the work!  We quickly wound 3 hanks of yarn into cakes.

I am working on a sockhead hat (pattern free on Ravelry).  About half way through, the yarn had a knot and the yarn on either side of it was not dyed a tweed.  I knitted a few rows to see how it would look but it was too obvious.  I ripped out several rows and eliminated that part of the yarn.

This is yarn from Herrschners that I bought on sale on Ebay.  I have made a cowl and I intend to make some fingerless gloves as well.  I'm sure my niece will like them.
