Gretel is fresh off the needles.
She had her bath in lavender scented shampoo and is blocking on a dinner plate. (The color in the picture below is way off - bad lighting).Details will come later when I try her on.
I have graduated from using the back of a chair to this....
Granted, it is not the beautiful wood swift I have been wishing for, but I will take it! I bought this on e-bay last month. It is attached to the small bookshelf that sits on my desk. No ball winder - I use a nostepinne to wind the yarn by hand. I can wind a little when I take a break from work. This is the lace weight yarn for the Bee Fields shawl. I did not want to try winding this off the back of the chair and risk it getting tangled.
