Spinning The Day Away
After the spin in I brought Maggie home. I spent a little time there and looked at all the scrumptious stuff she's been dyeing. They I saw this. Maggie said I could have it. She'd been spinning it and was tired of it so she gave it to me. I couldn't wait to spin it up so when I got home last night I pulled the green bobbin off the winder and put on a fresh one to spin it. This is the same fibre that Maggie dyed for me for my birthday. It is unbelievably soft and it is so easy to spin it practically spins itself. I am thinking of spinning up all the fibre she gave me and navajo ply it. I could use the practice. Then maybe I'll make a hat out of it. I'll see what I decide once I am done spinning.
Now for my review on this winder. First, I love the way it matches the wheel. When I got the winder for the Joy the winder looked like it was maple or something and it had just a clear finish. The winder definitely did NOT match the Joy. This match is much better. I love the way this winder works better than the other one did as well. I loved the other one but I always felt a bit of a jerk. I can't really explain it but I don't feel that jerk with this winder. I am guessing it is the different wheels and not the winder but I am really enjoying this winder. As you can see from the picture I got a regular orifice and not the delta orifice. I couldn't get used to the delta and decided it was best for me to get the regular one. I'm not sorry I made that decision either. Now to stop blogging and get back to spinning.
