Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

I’m particularly loving this Friday!  Look what I got today.

A new spinning wheel!  I’m afraid this spinning wheel thing is heading the direction of my sewing machine collection.  You know…lots of machines because they all do different things.

Before Christmas, The Genius and I went to Detta’s Spindle to try out spinning wheels.  The Genius got a Lendrum for Christmas.  As long as I was there, I played with wheels too.  I tried out a Matchless and loved it.  I also knew that Schacht was doing a limited edition of 200 cherry wood wheels.  I considered ordering one, and then decided to wait.  After Christmas, My Hero and I had about a 30 second conversation about it, and I ordered one.

There has been a lot of hype over when they were shipping. A snowstorm in Colorado delayed the first shipment.  On Tuesday, I got my shipping confirmation.  The box showed up at my house at 8:20 this morning.  After about 30 minutes of assembly time, I was spinning away!

Ok, gotta go.  I have kids calling me, texting me, and going in every direction!
