Mind Numbing Activities

I wanted to try to make my own "flat feet" knitting blanks and so I took this skein of 462 yards of superwash wool and unwound both ends together to into a big ball.
Bling had fun helping me. It took me about 45 mins to do this with the extra help.

I then knit up the double strands on size 6 needles so until I thought it would be enough to a pair of socks for David and one for Abigail. I will dye them and then unravel the strands and knit it up for a matching pair of socks for the kids! Well, that is the plan.
