Spinning the day away

Spinning the day away

This weekend I got lots of spinning time in on the balcony, while relaxing in the sun.

I swear it’s heaven.

I finally decided to take a crack at this bad boy from a company called ‘Two Sisters”:

… and I must say it’s coming along nicely.

I’ve decided to treat myself this weekend to a pretty new drop spindle at the Purple Purl. In the meantime, Tito and I spent the princely sum of $10.68 at the local army surplus store and came away with some plastic wheels and pvc piping – from which we plan to construct our own wheel. On the off chance that it works out I’ll document exactly what we do and share it in case anyone else wants to try!
