One of my excuses for having so much unused yarn is that it is a hassle and potentially hazardous tangled mess for me to try to wind up the yarn by hand.
Well, no more excuses - Look at this fantastically cool swift that my husband and kids crafted for my birthday - and to complete the package my husband hinted to my mom-in-law that a ball winder would be the perfect accompaniment.

I'm so excited and have already begun churning out beautiful little yarn cakes - yummy - my favorite kind of birthday cake!

First full year of classroom school - DONE!
Lots of new friends and adventures, lots of good learning, some not so good learning, parties and projects and speech meets and spelling bees and speed drills; driving back and forth and back again - all in all a successful year of transition for us, but definitely looking forward to the unstructured days of summer!
