Road trip!

My SO and I visited Janesville, WI, last weekend, to attend his family reunion.  As is my habit, I scoped out the possibility of an LYS, and discovered the Dragonfly Yarn Shop.  It did not disappoint, and I made a significant contribution to the local economy.

After I made my selections, the owner graciously offered to wind the yarn.  Oh, no thank you, I responded, I like to wind my own.

And you can see what a mess I made of that on skein number one.

Yarns clockwise:  Malabrigo Superwash Merino Sock "Violeta Africana', Malabrigo Superwash Merino Sock 'Abril', Dragonfly Yarn  Shop Hand Spun (merino), and Misti Alpaca Baby Me Boo 'Rosario'.

That's funny. I did the same thing with some Malabrigo sock yarn that I bought. It never fails. They offer to wind, you refuse, you spend the rest of your natural born days unpicking the knots you managed to make in the skein.
