I got into Somerville on Monday morning at 3:30 AM and then moved into my apartment in Allston in the evening. Boxes I shipped here arrived on Tuesday included bags of yarn and my ball winder. I miss my swift and spent a long time winding, tangling, and untangling my Schaefer Heather:
I used a back of a chair, tried to go slowly, but really, it was a pain in the butt. I don't really want to have my swift sent - what if it breaks? The first swift I ordered from Joann's arrived broken!
Later, I cast on for a single-skein shrug pattern from the LYS tour.
The pattern was free, and in fact, the yarn was something I won in an online contest at Eat.Sleep.Knit.
so the whole thing is a free project!
I stopped into a yarn store A Good Yarn in Brookline as they were closing and made a new friend on Ravelry. I'll be heading to the Brighton Knit Brunch on Saturday.
The knitting picture was taken with my mac; the yarn store picture was taken with my phone and I purposely left my camera with Seth (it's his too). I plan on getting a good camera as soon as my first paycheck comes.
