what did i do ALL day yesterday?

i wound yarn into balls. i mean ALL day

i started with 1050 yards of BEAUTIFUL handpainted tencel i got a while ago from mystical creation yarns (they MAY have gone out of business. their etsy store closed and the links to ebay and their other stone on their blog do not work). that 'yarn' was as thick as thread. as i said it's beautiful BUT IT'S SO DAMN THIN, it took forever to wind.

i had already wound the lace weight malabrigo in the color jaen. it's merino and so soooooooooooooft and lovely.

the two verigated non wound balls in the middle are koigu fingering weight painters palette premium merino (kpppm) at 175 yards. the dark non wound hank on the right is claudia hand painted fingering merino wool (peace love comfort and joy) at 175 yards. the hank on the left is;
atacama alpaca distributed by knitting fever at 110-120 yards
what am i going to make? i believe i am going to make a scarf that will remind me of the sea.
the point of this posting is; I NEED A BALL WINDER AND A SWIFT IMMEDIATELy
