I think I've fallen in love..

...with these little babies..

I mean, sure, I love my two little babies...but the minute they fall asleep, I quickly took these little babies out to play with..

Isn't it gorgeous?

A lot of beautiful yarns are sold in the skein instead of a ball. When you buy a skein of yarn like this one, you cannot knit it from the skein. If you try, it will end up a muddled mess and then you either just chuck it in the bin or take about a million hours to untangle it. Go on, ask me how I know.

To knit this skein, you have to first wind it into a ball. Normally I stretch the skein over 2 backs of chairs and wind it. But, when you have a laceweight yarn like the above, one 100g skein contains over a kilometer length of yarn. It will take you over a couple hours of standing and winding. It's not fun. Oh yeah, ask me how I know.
That's why these little toys are making me sooo happy. They turn the skein into..

these scrumptious yarn cakes! oh yum..
