I'm headed up to Ithaca in the morning and I intend to go yarn shopping and start in on the bag. One would think that a yarn shop would have a swift and a ball winder so that you can buy and wind up your yarn immediately, so that you can get started immediately...right? That means I wouldn't have to pack my ball winder and swift...?
Yeah, this is a lot tougher than trying to make sure that I've got clothes.
Saturday Evening Edit: Yes, they had a swift and ball winder! Whoo hoo!
