...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Presto! Its a Ball.

While at my mom's for Christmas I asked her about these whacky contraptions on the desk.

Turns out they are quite obviously for winding skeins into balls! And low and behold, I had skeins with me.

Umbrella Swift - open your skein and slip it over the umbrella.

Attached the end of the skein to the Winder and giv'er! (turn the handle, that is)



It went so fast I was actually sad when it was over.


  1. I always wondered about that first one...
    Fabulous. Another item I "need"! ;)

  2. YOU NEED TO GET SOME ! ..now that's an order..ahahahahah Seriously though I would be lost without mine, best tools ever but beware little people like them too .D


I love comments. They make me happy.
