More Dianna

OK, so I was up plying in the middle of the night and now it's done. Thank goodness because I thought I was going to burn my fingertips off.

Next step is getting it wound into a skein. Things were moving right along, I hooked up the skein winder and started to rock and roll! I'm winding and winding and it's getting harder to do. I'm watching the winder and wondering why it's starting to close up. I look at the spool (while still trying to turn the skein winder) and when I look back I saw this:

Well what in the name of shiny pants?! What did I do?! What in the heck happened? Who can't use a skein winder? Anyone out there, please tell me what I did wrong! The yarn just fell off the winder!

Anyway, not to obsess, it took me hours to do, but I finally got the alleged lace weight onto the niddy noddy. I know how to use that, thank goodness.

Now my only dilemma now is: what color to call this? Cherry splat? Liver?

Maybe it'll look better worked up. But just in case, some I real yarn will arrive any day now.
