I went with the plan that I was only buying one skein of sock yarn. Really, just one skein. Dena wanted to look at spinning wheels, or maybe I wanted her to look at spinning wheels. We walked, talked, looked, fondled a lot of fiber and yarn. She tried a few wheels, and didn’t buy that much. I was doing fine until I bought:
From the River’s Edge Weaving Studio at weavingstudio.com
Then I ran across: 50g each of Tussah Sea Sliver, 60% Seacell, 40% Tussah Silk from Fleece Artist at fleeceartist.com
While my girlfriend looked at wheels I found these: Sweet bunnies, then I purchased…. A big ball of German angora bunny and merino blend, and some cut angora, enough to blend into a sweater. From Angora Eden It made me want to buy a soft sweet bunny.
I was still under control at this point then I found Donna Jo Copeland, from Breezy Manor Textiles & Things
So I had to buy one pound of BFL/BL cross from Orion, beautiful
And she gave me a deal so I had to buy this also from Amber Meadow Farm (I can’t find a link but she is at amber.meadow at yahoo.com)
So now you know what will be on my wheel and I’ve about converted my girlfriend from a spindle to wheel. Still working on that.
Get your fiber out and enjoy.
