Good Friday Everyone!
I hope that as this day starts you are all happy and looking forward to a long weekend of rest and relaxation (and maybe even a sinful amount of duty abandoning knitting)…
Before any of you are up this morning my day will have started. Superwife surprised me this past Christmas morning with a big BIG BIG present and today we are setting out really early to pick it up… in Atlanta. My beautiful, thoughtful, and sneaky wife has given me a Mach spinning wheel by Spinolutions! In fact, she’s giving me this spinning wheel:
It is coming to me through my new friend Doug, who lives in Atlanta…
The specs on this thing are amazing. I’ve even seen a video in which they demonstrate how well balanced this machine is by getting it going and then walking away — leaving the wheel to spin on its own for a full 4 minutes… Incredible.
So rather than sharing fiber that I’ve purchased, I’ll soon be able to turn Fiber Fever Friday into something more personal and hard-won!
But just in case you are one of the faithful who has shown up today just to see a picture of a beautiful hank of yarn, this one’s for you:
This is another Christmas present from a very thoughtful and inspiring friend of mine with lots and lots of spark! It’s a beautiful and extremely soft alpaca blend by Suss Yarn. I don’t yet know what to do with it… any ideas?
Thank you all for stopping by to check in with me and mine today.
