Oh, hi...

I have a spinning wheel!
A spinning wheel that I stained PINK! I heart it so much... It's a double treadle Roadbug made by an awesome little company from Vermont, The Merlin Tree.

My first yarn is pink, too...

FLUFFfiber Merino, 4 oz in This Bouquet... I got about 300 yards of 10-11 wpi (about dk/worsted weight) yarn! That's soooo awesome!!! It's not very even, some over plyed areas, some under... but I really love it. It has character, right?

This is a very nice, relaxing addiction :) I think I'm going to knit a pair of Toasties with it, and then maybe a One Day Beret, if I can squeak out that much yardage, lol...

Oh, Thor wanted to say, "Hi!" :)

That's not what Thor is saying. He's saying, "I'm gonna get that yarn as soon as my mommy turns her back". LOL I didn't know that you stained it pink!

Love your spinning wheel. It sure isn't like the one Sleeping Beauty had though...very modern and sleek!!
