"Joy to the world...Joy to to and me" That's an Ashford Joy, right? Yipee for you! I'm so happy for you! Hope you have lotsa fun learning to spin on it!

I hope you feel better by tomorrow! And congrats on the new Ashford! Mendocino? We must live in the same State!

Sabrina said...

Hope you're feeling better. And have fun trying out that wheel! :D

Karen said...

ROTFLOL!!! I can understand the torture of Tinky Winky but Elmo...I may be scarred for life.

Jennifer said...

Yay for the wheel! I always get carsick on the way to Mendocino. Darn windy roads...

anne said...

I used to be plagued by dreams of bandits putting my little brother in the washer and having him come out looking like a rag doll (and then having to explain it all to Mom). I did have to wash an Elmo after #1 Son had his only bout of carsickness(it came out fine). Your post will propably have me thinking of my very troubled brother all day. Or avoiding laundry. Congrats on the wheel. Enjoy the wedding.

Congratulations on the wheel!

Pretty good outcome from puking - a new to you wheel!!!! Wooo hooo! A not-your-wedding? I think that answers the none-of-my-beeswax question I've had banging around my head: are you married/partnered?

I hope you're feeling better!

Acornbud said...

What a beautiful wheel, you lucky you!

Melissa said...

Poor Elmo! (grin!)
Hope you are feeling better soon!

mf said...

oh boy! the wheel looks great, so professional (to me anyway)
I am eager to know if you have used it yet, and are you hooked??

the kitchener bitch said...

Fabulous! Congrats on the new wheel! Let us know how it goes when you take it for a spin around the block.

Random factoid: the guy who does the voice for Elmo is finally going to be revealed for the first time ever on Oprah this Friday. :oP Keep your little one away from the tv. :o)

that fricken elmo should be tortured slightly more aggressively: lid closed, body half in, observer sees only one eye.

little swine.

I am a new spinner, too.

If you can find someone to give you a private lesson, take them up on it. Preferably someone patient, but really enthusiastic about their craft.

If you can, use already dyed roving. I just finished spinning some undyed because I couldn't wait to be able to afford some dye. It was a bit boring. I spun with a bit of dyed roving someone gave me, and it was way more fun. I felt like I was making "real" yarn!

Don't get discouraged. When things aren't going well, take a break, read up about spinning, about dyeing, about knitting with handspun. I find that one bit of information will stick in my head and I can take it back to my wheel and just concentrate on it.

Have fun!
