Hector, our original plus one, volunteered to visit the office today and help wind our skeins in to balls! The Purlettes+1 have been anxious to knit more and more and we just can’t keep up with their demand! While we do have a spinning machine to help wind the skeins (we use one by Nancy’s Knit Knacks), the machine still occasionally needs an operator to keep an eye on the yarn to make sure the skeins don’t get snagged. Here at the office, we’re definitely guilty of creating a few rat’s nest once in a while. But Hector was a pro — he even had time to read his magazine while the wheel was spinning. I guess that’s to be expected when you’re typically found winding yarn the “old-school” way with your hands and a chair. Thank you, Hector, for taking the #17 bus from The Redwoods to help us out. I know the Purlettes will be excited to see so many expertly spun balls at Thursday’s knitting circle!
