I love my mother-in-law. I mean, I know you aren't supposed to. You're supposed to think she's some evil wench who never thinks you're enough for her son. But mine is adorably sweet. We got her Christmas gifts yesterday, which included a DVD copy of our wedding and a $50 bill for each of us, along with a note saying she wished she could be there to shop with us!

Only trouble is I'm a little bit shopped out. I know, I'm as surprised by that as you are. Nevertheless, there you have it. I have no need for yarn for sometime (in fact, I hereby invoke a "no more yarn purchases until Maryland Sheep and Wool" diet) and so I'm stuck trying to decide what to do with my money. That's where you come in:

What do I do with MILs gift?
Put it towards a swift
Put it towards a blocking board
Be responsible and pay bills
Put it into my Norman Hall Spinning Wheel fund

Ooooh a Norm Hall wheel. They are to die for. I'd love one of those. ... or a Golding! I tried out their triple flyer model at NYSW and it was like buttah.

Hi Amie:

What's a blocking board? I voted for that as it seemed cool.

A blocking board is... well, a big board, that allows you to pin your knitted items to it for blocking lace and sweaters and that sort of thing...

Hmm... yarn diet till Maryland Sheep and Wool. That sounds like a good idea for me too, but I don't think I can do it!

You wanna spin next Tuesday (Jan. 4?)

Send me an email and let me know! :)

Definitely the swift. :-) It will go very nicely with that brand-new Fricke ballwinder that you just got.

As a new owner of one, I will be the first to tell you that it is indispensible when using your winder!

I voted for the swift, too. You need to round out your little fiber preparation table, and that would be perfect.
