Prettier in a Ball

Pink dogwoods are blooming outside my window. Makes me miss places outside of New York City.

If you remember that hank of Kool-Aid yarn that I dyed, then you might remember that I wasn't very pleased with the colors. It looked prettier in a hank, but it still didn't quite please me. Instead of studying one night, I felt the extreme urge to roll this 400+ yard hank into a ball. Some day, I will have a swift and ball-winder, but for now, I will be able to procrastinate for countless hours by hand-rolling my yarn.

p.s.: I don't like the way my blog looks and I intend to make some changes to the template and all of that.

Hi from Austria! Oh yes, this ball is a true beauty, it reminds me of a cool ice cream sorbet, preferably taken in some street cafe somewhere in Italy... oops, you sent me dreaming with this pic, thanks for that!

Okay, now I'm blaming you for my Secret Pal sign up. Figured if my training partner did it, I should too. Don't go jumping off any bridges or I'll have to join you on that one too!
