Loops on a Sunday

Sometime mid-afternoon, hours after the insane storm with 70-80 mph winds whipped through Tulsa, I decided I needed a break from working on the house and that I needed some good quality knitting time without my demanding little furball jumping all over me so I headed down to loops to sit four a couple hours. :-) I'm so close to being finished with my current project it hurts. Seriously. And there will be pictures here soon, I promise. If you're on Ravelry there are already plenty of pictures there, but I wouldn't want to spoil the suprise by posting them here for the whole world to see.

The Malabrigo warehouse fire was discussed at length and we are all super-sad. And because of this news, my new friend Knittedzebra decided she better get more of the yarn she needs to finish her current project. And, of course, the last skein of purple malabrigo turned out to have some serious issues. So the pictures below show everyone trying to sort out the skein's "issues." Not only was it poorly wound, but there were four ends in the mess. I think they spent a half an hour dealing with this mess. Isn't that always the way? When its the last skein, and you know there's no more coming in any time soon, thats when there are problems.

Its a good thing Malabrigo is so soft and pretty and knits up so well, otherwise this might have been a total turn off. I'm still glad I bought those 4 skeins a couple weeks ago, but I hope when I go to wind them that they don't bear any similarity to this mess.
