For all of you who are sweating and suffering in the heat, I'm sorry. I feel so bad for you. Almost guilty. Almost. This year has been a cool summer up here in River City. I'm not sure why but it's unusual for us to have days where the highs only get up into the 70's at this time of year. Some have been whining (whinging for you other English-speaking folks ;) ) that we haven't had a summer here. Kidlets, get over it. You'll be happier when you look at your electricity bill.
Wind 'em Up
Since I've started spinning (albeit slowly), one of the tools that would be handy would be a reel-type skein winder. I could use a niddy noddy or a swift, but using a niddy noddy can be tiring and a swift doesn't keep the lengths even. I'm looking for plans for such a beast but so far haven't come up with anything. If I can get plans or can work out a plan for a winder, I may be able to get it made up if I knit some socks and pay for the wood. Any tips or leads would be most appreciated.
