Well, the new baby spinning wheel seems to be settling in nicely with the big wheels.
Immediately after getting her, I did a quick practice spin, but have not played with her since. Lack of attention to the new wheel is due to back pain and spasms of epic proportions, of which I am getting heartily sick. This too shall pass and I’ll be able to give her the attention she deserves. For the brief time I’ve spent with her, she seems like a sweet little wheel that spins nicely, but I haven’t got her adjusted perfectly yet.
I do like the fact that her little head moves from side to side so that you can spin right or lefthanded and from an angle as the spirit moves you. She’s a nice quiet wheel with smooth treadling. She also folds flat so you can pop her into her carrying case in a jiffy!
I forsee years of happy spinning ahead for the two of us!
Thanks for all the entries so far in the Guess the Baby Spinning Wheel’s Name Contest. Several of you have guessed the name, but not how I am spelling it. If no one guesses the name with the exact spelling, the prize will go to the first person who submitted the correct name with an alternate spelling. Winner to be announced Thursday afternoon!
While We Are On the Subject of Spinning
These are rovings I bought from Nistock Farms– clockwise from top left: Plums and Berries(Cotswold), Beneath the Waves (Cotswold), Autumn Spice(Cotswold), and Brown Sugar (lamb and alpaca).
The lovely wine roving I’m offering up as a prize in the Guess the Baby Spinning Wheel’s Name Contest is also from Nistock Farm.
I think I’m going to have to spin up the Autumn Spice very soon. That should come as no surprise to someone, for I blame her for my current obsession with the color orange.
Ummmmm . . . notice the lack of knitting content today? See “back pain and spasms of epic proportion,” above. Here’s Lucy, waiting patiently for me to return to the wheel.
It’s the Process
And Now For Something Completely Different
Didja know that Spongebob rode the Washington DC metro?
