the promise of new knits

I love winding yarn. Transforming a skein into the ready-to-knit position, seeing how the colours blend, and having a stackable item afterwards! I only wind when I’m ready (or at least almost ready) to use the yarn, and I just love all the promise of new projects that they hold.

Raggedy Cotton that I dyed at the store:

Isn’t it cool? I’m not much into novelty-type yarns, but this one is 100% cotton (and of course, dyed by me). I’ve got two big skeins, 225 g each. We’ll see if my project idea works out…hopefully I’ll be able to start soon, but I have so very many other things to do and knit at the moment!

    The linen yarn colors are awesome! I like the chocolate like of the cotton yarn, the colors are really great. Makes me wanna eat it! ^_^

    Lovely colours and photos!

    Is it just personal preference not to wind the yarn until you are planning to use it, or is there something I should know??? (I wind on purchase so I’ll be ready when fancy strikes!) Just wondering…

    Well, thank god I’m not the only freak. I get some incredulous looks when I tell the people at my LYSes not to wind the yarn because I enjoy doing it.
