Did Someone Mention Cake?

Let me introduce you to my new best friend, my yarn ball winder. I love, love this contraption. I have been using 2 strands of yarn to knit my hats for chemo patients. I was winding the yarn into a ball and then rolling that into 2 smaller, equal balls (Yes, I know there was probably an easier way, but my dad was an Aggie...nuf said. It's in the DNA). My ball winder winds my yarn into beautiful cakes of yarn that don't roll off of my lap when knitting. I can then pull the yarn from the center and from the outside at the same time. It is so much fun to wind the yarn. The girls think I am nuts having so much fun using this thing, but they don't get it. I am making a yarn cake and cake in ANY form is wonderful. I just love cake. Don't you?

Does the cat chase your yarn when you are knitting? My Hobbes thinks it's just so much fun. Ugh.

They don't so much now that I have the yarn caked this way. With the balls, they were constantly rolling off of my lap and then they were fair game. When I am knitting and the cats are in my lap, they are too busy sleeping to worry about the yarn. Hobbes is still a baby compared to these old ladies. They are coming up on 9 and 13 years old.
