I may have failed to mention that I got a(nother) spinning wheel! This is a Wendy Wheel by Pipy and I love it! Somehow this little wheel reminds me of The Brave Little Toaster. So sturdy and bold! A friend of my is a vigilant watcher of the Ravelry boards, back in January she saw that this was for sale and in Manhattan – perfect and no shipping.
At the moment I am spinning some icelandic fleece as a part of the Explorers group of my spinning guild. Truly these Pipy wheels spin beautifully – if you are a wheel lover and have a chance to buy one, may I suggest that you not pass it up! I also have an original Pipy – courtesy of that same ever vigilant friend who now that I am writing this out is appearing to be more and more of an enabler! I would also suggest that you get one of those friends – ever vigilant and on the lookout for things you love!
I already had an embarrassment of riches where spinning wheels are concerned and this one puts me even more firmly in that category — and I don’t care! did you check out those quit smoking stats? I haven’t come close to spending all that $$ I’ve saved!
