SQUEE!!!!! - when you don't know what to do... — LiveJournal
do the next thing
(cross-posted with joyful abandon)

I must be excited... my subject line isn't in all lower-case.

I ordered my first spinning wheel today: a Kromski Mazurka from Pacific Wool and Fiber. They have a special on Kromski wheels right now; you get two extra bobbins, a how-to video, and free shipping (though the thing only weighs 9 pounds; I can't imagine the shipping would be too ruinous). It's the extra bobbins and the video that sold me.

[sings]I'm get-ting a spin-ning wheel, I'm get-ting a spin-ning wheel...[sings]

I can hardly believe it. I'm sure that there will be some cussing and bitching about it when I finally get it finished and put together (I bought it unfinished) and utterly fail to spin anything resembling decent yarn... but that's okay. It's a learning experience. Goodness knows I need more learning experiences!

So...SQUEE! [sings]I'm get-ting a spin-ning wheel, I'm get-ting a spin-ning wheel...[sings]

Instantly Jealous

I am instantly jealous to learn that you're getting a spinning wheel!! I have a drop spindle and love to spin with it. I can image that spinning on an actual wheel is a lot more fun. Good luck to you!
