It's a beautiful thing:
(Well, an expensive thing too, but I'm trying to forget about that.) My WooLee Winder arrived Thursday of last week - quicker than I had even hoped! I haven't had a great deal of time to devote to it, but if first impressions prove to be correct, it will be a Love-fest! I did a fast plying of all my little bits and pieces of left-over singles. It was wonderfully quick and fun. I expected a break-in period (for me mostly) but the feel and handling seem very intuitive to me. I'm hoping to spend some quality one on one time later today. I have my first (and probably last, as I'm really not in the market) commissioned spinning project slated to begin later today.
It's a simple thing:
pattern for all of them. I much prefer the finer gauge of a DK or Sport weight to the heavier worsted weight cottons.
It's a WILD thing:
LOL - but I love it! I wanted to knit a shawlette type of scarf, but wanted one that I could wear more like a cowl than a shawl. The 22.5 degree pattern fit the bill perfectly. It's more long and narrow than most. I really like the scalloped edge that is knit (not crocheted) on.
And it's a totally Amazing thing:
How quickly this little guy is growing up. I spent way too much time yesterday in Toys R Us and The Learning Post tying to decide upon birthday gifts. The big day is next weekend! I truly am amazed.......
