My dad, being an engineer, is always looking for projects to build and challenges to solve. My sister and I had talked about yarn meters like this as we have been winding (what seems like) tons of skeined yarn with unknown yardage. We have a niddy noddy, but this would be so much easier and faster! "I can build one of those - don't spend the $50 on it!" So, with challenge in hand, dad set out to build us a yarn meter.
I think he did pretty darn great.
Thanks Dad - you are the GREATEST!
Zebra sock #1 is now complete.
The mailman also brought a great little package all the way from Germany. Kimberly had a little blog contest a while back and I won a set of stitch markers!
I hope everyone has a wonderful, food and family filled Thanksgiving! We have two twenty pound turkeys, more veggies than a grocery store produce section, and nineteen friends and family coming over to make it all disappear....(of course, we'll have the dogs to clean up any leftovers!)
