The Morning After

Dear Yarn,

You've been warned before: Yarn and Beer don't mix well. Oh, sure, Beer tastes good, and it makes you feel invincible: you could become anything in the world. And knitting a few rows after a Beer or Two (Beer always invites friends along you know) isn't so bad, usually it all turns out ok, if not a little looser than usual. But winding... oh, trying to wind yourself into a ball with Beer's help never works out. So stay away from Beer or next time I won't help you out after you've gotten mixed up with a bad brew.

Sincerely, Gradschoolknitter.
P.S. Maybe part of this is my fault. Perhaps I need to find you a good winder and swift to play with.

Hahaha! I just finished winding a skein at Barnes and Noble under the influence of coffee (not quite as potent as the beer/yarn combo) and was contemplating what the next holiday I could ask for a swift and winder was too ...
