Pretty Circles

I'm still working on the prayer shawl for my church, about 50% complete. Last evening I attended a meeting for the prayer shawl ministry and ended up bringing home about 40,000 yards of yarn to wind. No, that isn't a typo. Several people, present company included have acquired large cones of yarn from a factory here. The cones aren't practical to knit from and there aren't enough cones to go around. So since I own a winder I offered to wind them as part of my service to the church. It isn't all that difficult and I can do it at my leisure. My girl keeps call the giant cones "pretty circles" and that they are.

Seriously? WOW. That's a... that's an endeavor. But good for you. Question- does winding the yarn count as your charity knitting time ;-)?
