well, this is different !


I'm still hobbling round on crutches with a big boot on my foot !! xrays last Friday were inconclusive so they will be checking them again this Friday to see if there has been any change in the alignment of the bones.

This means that both spinning wheels are now packed away and my good friend Pete has dashed to the rescue with this.
I had a play with an e-spinner a couple of years ago so had an idea what to expect. Its really quite awkward in as much as when I spin its a subconscious matching of treadle movements to fibre being spun, I really don't have to think about it too much. With this its back to basics again and its quite a learning curve but I think I've spun enough to finish the kep and I will have another play with it tomorrow.

I will report back in my next post.
speak soon xx

I can't wait! I've seen them at craft fairs and have wondered what it would be like to use one.
