I have been drawn in

I have a few friends here as well as some on line who spin.
It has become a fascination to me - I really want to spin!
I was telling my husband and he said why wait 3 months until Christmas -
just get a wheel.
Holy Cow!
What was he thinking???
Doesn't he know after 20 years how addictive and neurotic my personality is???
So yesterday I ordered an Ashford Traveller.

Here is a little photo of the wheel to whet your appetite until mine arrives:


My Dear Husband is the best! Thank you, Honey.

You lucky duck! I've been thinking about spinning, too. I may just buy a spindle kit first and see what I think, though.

Let us know how you like the wheel! Can't wait to see your beautiful yarn!

Thanks for all your support. Woohoo - I am soooo excited. Jeesh!
I really won't get any work done now.

And no, Twig, you may not! I don't think I could find anyone else who would put up with me :-) with such grace.

Cindy said...

Congrats!!! You'll get hooked, I'm sure. =)

I was originally going to get a Traveller myself, before I got intrigued by the Lendrum. Let me know how you like it.

Oh wow, you will have a lot of fun with your wheel.

Mr Brickie is like that with me, we are very lucky indeed :)

How exciting! I plan on learning to spin myself! Hub is talking about getting me a wheel for X-mas.
