Have I mentioned this is becoming a bit of an expensive hobby?

There is a confession to make here: when I purchased the yarn, I forgot to make a ball of yarn from the skein using their antique machine (I'm sure there's a better name for it, but I don't remember - this is what happens after you've had two kids: you forget stuff!).
So I kindly asked the husband to help me out. It worked out great!
You might wonder why they don't sell the yarn already in a ball? well, it turns out it's easier to ship when the yarn is in a skein and it allows the die on the yarn to dry up easily during transportation. This is what I've been told.
