They say your wheel(s) choose you, or that you just KNOW when you find the right one. Be still my heart; I’m a gonner.
Cathy inadvertently introduced me to the brand new Kromski Fantasia this morning, and I’m smitten. It’s the wood hues, the shape… it’s pure lust, based only on appearances. I have no idea how I’d like changing ratios by changing bobbins. Talk to me, spinners!! (Non-spinners, feel free to tell me how pretty she is…)
So, I think we all know what my weekend will look like. I need to check in with my local Kromski dealer and see if she happens to have one on the way (the website says they begin shipping on the 12th. From where?). She also taught me to spin and has patiently watched me try 318 wheels (okay, so maybe not QUITE that many), so she’ll have a good idea of what changing the bobbin to change the ratio (how slow/fast you spin, which impacts the thickness of the yarn, to grossly over-simplify it) will do to my frustration level.
But tonight, I’m knitting another pair of baby booties, right after I do the Wii Fit Plus thing. Yes, I really do enjoy it! Sunday, I’m going to make a necklace with some League friends… I’ve never tried to do more than make stitch markers, and I didn’t enjoy that one bit, so… I hear our hostess and jewelry maker has a beautiful home, and I know I’ll have good company…
What will your weekend hold?
