My new toy!

I got this from Ball & Skein to wind my skeins more quickly, and what a difference!


I skeined 10 skeins of Pearly Twist in the time I used to only get about 3 done! I think I'll get even faster as I get used to this new toy. Thanks a ton to the Yarnies on Ravelry for talking about skeinwinders and rating their own.

Yes, that means more yarn is coming to Nine Rubies soon!

A beautiful Tuscany Shawl

At San Mateo Knitters, I got to see some progress on Christina's Tuscany Shawl...

Blackberry Jam

Pretty nifty, eh? This is knit with Luxury DK in Blackberry Jam. I don't know if there is more in stock, but you can let the nice folks at Nine Rubies know if you want some! They can hold it for you when I make the next delivery...
