That made you sit up and notice, eh?!?!?? You'll have to wait til the last picture, though!!!!
Right, since the arrival of Tatskool's gorgeous HDT last week I found I'd run out of Eze-bobs!!!
Now spelling counts a LOT when finding these little gems which Rita Cochrane first introduced me to waaaaay back during my first (think it was the first) visit to Palmetto Tat Days or just after. It's not easy to find them as they are spelt differently by people. If you do a google search you'll find Ez bobs, Eze-bobs and Ez-bobs which doesn't make life very easy for an old git in the UK. Not sure where to find them in the USA but I did find a fabulous supplier in Ireland (are you there, Tatskool?). The company is here and they're called Arabesque Braids - look on the Knitting Nancy page - their delivery is FAST too. Just a hint when ordering - the size 2 (my favourites) hold 50 yards of HDT easily.
So, when I'd wound just one of Tatskool's skeins onto an Eze-bob I realised I'd run out so back to the drawing board - aka Arabesque Braids for more. I'd decided to try and tidy up my messy balls of thread which had already decided to unwind themselves in storage and put them on these wee gismos so I ordered 8.
Well, since the arrival of Sue Anna's gift I've had to order MORE!!!!! I just LOVE having packages arrive through the post!!! Here's a few pictures of them.
First picture is entitled 'now you see me'!!!
Second is 'now you don't' - bet you guessed that already!!!!!
The last one is 'bum's up'!!! Actually to prove that I can be organised from time to time I've written on the bottom of each the name of the thread, size and (where I know it) origin. Mind, I think those with no names are most likely Yarnplayers as I recognise them from her Etsy shop.
