by the time all the holiday income is counted and bills payed, i usually managed to squeeze out a special gift to myself/the sweetie pie press. since craft-enabling apparatuses bring me great joy, it's not hard to feel very self-satisfied with such a new acquisition.
this year, the investment piece was a yarn winder and swift. i have some new crochet projects involving lace weight yarns and the task of winding those 400+ meter skeins finally pushed me over the edge and helped justify this purchase.
these guys came in the mail today and i am entirely transfixed. i have to bribe myself into doing other work with thoughts like "finish writing out this contract and you can wind another ball."
the future is now.
