Which would you rather knit with?
The ball on the left I hand-wound with the assistance of my co-worker - it took a long time! That EcoWool likes to stick together! And look at that lop-sided, ugly form.
The cake on the right, I wound in just minutes with my fabulous new swift and ball winder. Look at that beautiful criss-cross action! Look at that center-pull! And, it won't roll clear across the subway car and land in a puddle of who-knows-what under the seats. Joy!!!!
And she didn't buy me the cheap plastic swift, either - she went for the wood. My mom is the greatest!
Oh, and P.S. - crappy birthday to me...who wants to spend their birthday at work? Ugh.
