My goal for the next four days is to do an update a day for the next four days! :)
Lots of fiber related activities lately.
My first BIG news happened Tuesday, when I was startled awake by my phone ringing. In my half sleep haze, I heard "Weaving Works" and "we'll hold it for a week" before I promptly fell back asleep.
Imagine my delight when I woke up that evening to hear that my LENDRUM had arrived! w00t!
Unfortunately, I had to work two more days before I could pick it up...
Somehow I made it through. :)
I have to admit, I was a little intimidated when I opened the box
I was like "crap, I hope there's directions... I just finished a 12-hour shift." But putting the wheel together is as easy as screwing in two screws. The hardest part was figuring out the tension-thingy.
Beautiful naked bobbin shot. :)
Yes, I'm in my PJs. I have yet to go to bed! :)
I pulled out the Corriedale Pencil roving in Pueblo, and got spinning. I figured I needed to learn how to USE the wheel and not have to worry about drafting yet.
Here's a bobbin full. :)
I love my spinning wheel. I've signed up to take the spinning class at the Weaving works, so I REALLY learn how to use the wheel. It's in the middle of July. I can't wait. :)
