Here she is:
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the local Black Sheep Gathering. I had so much fun. I hugged the sheep. Never underestimate the power of hugging sheep. :) I met a nice lady who had a goreous spinning wheel for not too much. She let me pay part up front, and I will pay the rest when I get my severance. She is pretty. I have been playing with her. She spins like butter. I am out of practice, but it is coming back. I have a bunch of roving that needs spinning, and it came with 4 bobbins, so I will have stuff to do.
Here she is:
She's a Paragon wheel. I do not know what that means yet. It is supposed to be an old refurbished wheel. Not sure what that means yet either. But she spins well. Spinning is kind of a destressing, zen activity for me. And she is a single treadle. That is good. I prefer the single treadle. It means I can continue spinning even when my joints hurt. I can use one foot then the other. I can rest the one I am not using up on something, and I don't have to put twice as much pressure to use it with one foot. So now I have a wheel again, a good quality camera to animate with, and food enough for the next few months. Now I just gotta get a job. Or win the lottery, one of the two.
