I was very excited to receive a yarn swift and TWO yarn ball winders for Christmas (one will be exchanged) from my family this year.

A yarn swift is a fantastic creation that holds your skein of yarn, allowing it to easily spin and unwind as the yarn ball winder creates a center-pull ball of yarn.  This prevents significant others from holding the yarn between their hands while the knitter winds their own ball of yarn.  Henry isn't often excited about my knitting projects, but he was impressed by these knitting accessories!

In other news, I have begun to sell my handknits at a local children's consignment store: The Young & Restless Boutique!  Hurray!  My first items for sale and I'm already thinking about what to make next!
