Hot DAMN!!!
i hardly know what to do with myself. i have been thinking about getting a spinning wheel for a while now. i started with the hand spindle, and managed to make some decent yarn on that (even on my first try!!) but i didn't get to spin very often, because the kitties just can't resist the spindle, and every time they see they get all exciting, and are all Woohoo! Kill the fluff!! my theory is that the spinning of the wheel will intimidate them enough to back off. i also couldn't do it for very long because i developed this habit of holding my roving in a vice-like death grip that after a while made my hands all sore and claw-like...so, you know, not the most relaxing. i really wanted to try a wheel, but there is nowhere anywhere near here where i can do that, except for a spinning weekend a couple hours from here that only happens once a year. grrrr. and of course, like any normal craftster lusting after yet another hobby, i got into the habit of checking out wheels online....and to make a long story short, i took the plunge and just bought one! here she is!
isn't she gorgeous? i'm gonna have to think up a really kickass name for her, because i haven't even seen her in person and i'm already all weak-kneed! i was kinda nervous about such a big craft investment, but it was such a deal, i coudn't help myself. it's a Louet S10, used but in very good condition, taken apart, tested and with new bearings put in. and she comes all set with a swift, extra bobbins, and even carders!! all for about $200US from a nice couple in Holland. i've already transfered the money, and am now just waiting for the arrival of my new pride and joy... i can hardly contain myself!!! Woohoo!!
