There has been a little bit of talk around the internet lately that has to do with whether to rewind skeins or not. Scout has posted up a poll about it and Yarn Pirate has now decided that she isn't going to reskein skeins anymore. I am really curious about this because I rewind all of my skeins and probably won't change from that, but I thought I would ask you guys for input. Do you prefer your skeins as is or rewound or do you not care?
My personal feeling is that I like the skeins reskeined because then I can tell how the colors will mix together. There are times when I dye up a skein that I don't like the combination until they have been reskeined and remixed together. Of course I don't have any pictures of before and after shots, but I am sure that you have seen plenty out there. A good example of this is my two latest colorways:
I designed both of these for Sarah's baby shower as a prize for the raffle that we had there. The Blue/Pink/White one is called Lullaby and the Pink/white/Brown one is called Knot Another Hat and will be exclusive to Knot Another Hat. The Knot Another Hat skein went to Sarah, because she should get the first skein. I was actually really iffy about these colorways until I reskeined them. I really love them now and they will be permanent in my collection. Anyway, I do want your feedback, so please comment with your opinions.
Last, but not least, check out these really pretty flowers that Sarah sent me as a thank you for the baby shower. I was so surprised to receive flowers. The roses smell wonderful. It just cheers up my happy little house.
