CAKE!

Yes, it's only 9:30, but doesn't that make cake more exciting?



It's not cake you eat though. It's a yarn cake. And it's for Rae.



Rae's going to be my guinea pig and show how the NEON sock yarns knit up. Since she doesn't have a swift and ball winder, I figured I'd wind it up for her.

Happy little cake, don't you think? The color looks a little dark in this pic. I also wound up my orange crush. That's at home and wasn't part of the photo shoot this morning. I think I may start a new pair of socks soon. Or at least swatch with it.

Sleeve 1 is done on Hubby's aran. I finished it as the train was pulling into my station last night. I've got the ribbing for sleeve 2 finished and will start the cabling tonight. Hopefully, I won't have to rip out 6" and this one will go faster.

The colors of that yarn look so bright and nice. I cant wait to see how it knits up too.

Wow! I'm so honored! I'm thrilled to be your guinea pig. I hope I don't disappoint -- the yarn certainly won't!
