Clearly, I have gone crackers.

No! Don’t do it!
It’s too late. You go on without me! Save yourself!
But you have a swift and ball winder? yes?
You are just like me. I have a ball winder and a swift ( and I even know exactly where they are) but i regularly hand wind all my yarns ( mostly laceweight) with the skein wrapped around my knees – why???
That’ll keep you busy for a while.
/stating the obvious
It was only about an hour and a half, which I think it’s too bad! Certainly cheaper than buying a large ball-winder (which is why I was hand-winding)
I hand wind a lot (tho not laceweight!) because I’m too lazy to set up the swift and ballwinder. It’s easier to put it over your knees and wind while watching a movie or something. Can’t wait to see what you make with this.
Thanks Sil. I’ve already cast something on and made enough progress to make a photo worthwhile!
But is it soothing??? I quite like a little wool winding as I can have a little mindless relax as I wind.
I enjoy hand winding. I wound 200g of laceweight last week. I would like a swift, but I have no need for a ballwinder.
