Yesterday I went to Fibrefest at the Tradex in Abbotsford. I had a great time. Bought a new top whorl spindle that is gorgeous, a shawl pattern that is gorgeous and some fibre which is ...............you guessed it .. Gorgeous. Met lots of friends and did some spinning but them I phoned DH (in future referred to as the Enabler) about this Louet S 45 spinning wheel.
I had been looking for FOLDING WHEEL that didn't take too much room and was easy to transport but ...................................... I really loved this wheel and the Enabler said "Get it". Hannelore made me a Deal I couldn't refuse, Bless her. So here are photos of my new LITTLE wheel that is not very heavy, very portable and will sit on the shelf when not in use.
Please note the yellow guard lizard (plastic) on my new wheel is called "Anuil Likit" It is a Mother's day present from DGD Shelby.
I told my family the only thing I wanted for Mother's Day was the stuffed green Dragon from Ikea. Shelby said" NO you are getting a yellow lizard with black spots" As she ran out the door giggling she shouted " AND YOU WILL LIKE IT " Thus the name for the lizard is' Anuil Likit'.
p.s. I also bought 1 ball of sock yarn. LIFE IS GOOD
