And voila!

A new spinning wheel = a new skein of yarn. It's only 37 yards in length, but it's lovely, oh so lovely.

I'm very pleased with the new wheel (you can get one for yourself at Ford4Him over on Etsy). I'm also quite pleased with spinning on the wheel. I was nervous about sitting down to spin tonight. I didn't have anyone to show me how, I was learning from videos and such online, and what other tips I had came via Twitter posts and Etsy convos, this made me nervous. But I spun, slowly, methodically, and voila - a skein.

If it wasn't past 10PM, I'd go dig up some more wooly batts and spin another skein. However; 'tis late and this girly still has a long week ahead of her.

Bon nuit.

I'm so jealous! I wish I could afford one right now.

Can't wait to see what you come up with on your new wheel. That first little skein looks great. =)
