Winding Dream in Color Smooshy (Ruby River) from The Loopy Ewe with a ball winder and a Mama Bear Swift I love the cherry swift, and so does my husband, who doesn’t have to hold the yarn anymore while I wind on. This time, I am weighing yarn because this yarn is for a Clapotis, and I need 1/5 for the beginning section, 1/5 for the ending section, and the rest for the middle. The yarn was a Mother’s Day gift from my daughter’s family. Every available Clapotis chart is downloaded; I joined the “How Do You Pronounce Clapotis?” group on Ravelry; I looked at numerous projects to decide on yarn and needle size. The time has come to start this project!
