I watched as a woman was spinning on a basic wheel at a craft event. Behind her was a rack of yarns offered for sale. Up front and center was a long hank I just had to buy. After all, it had my favorite colors! I brought it home, and using the video tutorial link Carol provided in her last blog post ("Beads and Birds" -- in my sidebar), I wound it into this fabulous "yarn cake" with the beginning yarn pulling from the center. It was fun, thanks Carol. Now I just need to start knitting with it!
