You find it. :)
Case in point.....
You get some of this..... Mohair/Merino Mix
To make into this..
oh..let me show you another picture of this ;)
by using this....
*you can pick up your jaws off the floor now!**
An opportunity to get this slightly used wheel (Ashford Traveller, DD and DT) at a good price presented itself. After discussing it with hubby, he said "Happy Birthday" a month early :) So who am I to turn down a birthday gift, especially an early one. (yeah so I may not visit any LYS's on vacation, I'll live :)
I was truly content to wait a while to get one. I kept telling myself there was no room or no time...but see, about 45 mins can fill a bobbin. Ha! Well when you spin very fine and very thick you can ;) I do have a lot to learn though...
I haven't spun on a wheel since SAFF in October and I didn't do too bad. (sadly I won't be able to attend this year for various reasons) Hubby was impressed.....mainly with himself as he got me a gift I like (hey as long as he doesn't buy me clothes, we're good, he learned that early on ;) and he didn't have to leave the house to buy it!
Congrats on the new "toy". Have fun!
Wuhahahahahaha! YOu and Cpurl didn't last very long did you? ;-)
The best gifts are the ones we find ourselves :-) Congrats on the new wheel!
Nice! I have the same wheel and she and I just don't see eye to eye. She spends her time sitting behind my couch. She is very forlorn! You did a much better job than I do!
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, how exciting!!!! Look at that beautiful yarn. You are a spinning pro. :)
I can see it now - me, the last non-spinning knitblogger. ;)
Welcome to the Dark Side, padawan...
Whee! Now if I could just find some time myself, we could both spin some nice thick and thin stuff!
Congrats on the birthday gift! LOL, Hubster's been trained (as has his family) not to buy me clothes, either. ;)
This is going to be sooo much fun!! Yay for Zonda and her wheelie!
How exciting! I got my wheel a few weeks ago and I haven't had a chance to do much spinning. I need to just set aside the time and do it.
We can have a Spin Off now! (except I seem to have forgotten how to actually use the wheel!)
Congrats!!! Such a perfect birthday gift for you!! I'm looking forward to finding you pretty pretty fiber at Sock Summit!!
See? You and that wheel were meant for each other.
Yay! And you first spun on a traveller! Pauley will be happy to hear that. =) I'm so excited for you!
One of us... one of us...
Yay! It's lovely - have you named it yet?
It's gorgeous! Happy birthday :)
Very nice. And a mohair blend to start with. I'm impressed!
