My new wheel is scheduled to be delivered on Thursday. It is a Lendrum double treadle complete folding wheel. I purchased it from Bountiful. The extremely nice lady I talked to on the phone told me she had several in stock, so if you’re looking for this wheel, there you have it.
So Lenny the Lendrum should be delivered on Thursday. Starting Friday, I am off from work until January 10. Ahhhhhhhhh . . .
I foresee lots of spinning.
Speaking of spinning, my current spinning project:
Staid grey wool.
It occurs to me that I ought to slop the gifts into the gift bags (yup, bought the gift bags ages ago) before the wheel gets here, otherwise there may be serious problems with getting that done.
And the fake tree was delivered today. I really ought to put it together tonight.
I made an unscheduled surprise trip to Knit Happens this past Sunday. I saw the Kaalund mohair yarn in person (in yarn?) that Kristine blogged about last week on the shop blog. It is indeed glorious. And some of it asked nicely to come home with me.
What could I do? It said “please take me home.”
I am a sucker for nice polite yarn. I also forgot to take a photo of said nice polite yarn. Doh!
I bought one skein each of “Toucan” and “Forest Floor.” There’s a color chart here.
Poor Deprived Kitty
Some of you commented on yesterday’s photo of Lucy and the sad lack of kitty toys shown. I believe there were only four catnip mice visible in the photo. And only one of those mice was knitted from cashmere! Poor Lucy!
Several of you have left comments asking about the state of my hair. Some of you have emailed me with similar questions.
Nope, I’ve not had it cut yet. See?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go cough up a lung.
