knitting, kittens and yarn
Tuesdays and Wednesdays are really damned long days.

Last night in spinning class, we got to try the wheels for the first time. I like the wheels much better than the drop spindles; trying to keep the spindle turning and pulling the wool at the same time - both with my right hand - is a coordination challenge. The wheel is hard than it looks, though; it takes the right amount of foot pressure to keep the wheel going, and I kept breaking my yarn. By the end of the night, though, I was much improved. My first wheel was a piece of crap, and literally kept falling apart. The second wheel was a pint-sized "gossip wheel" and was easier to pedal. The third wheel I got to try was an Ashland, and oh my, I'm in lust. I think I'm going to try to find a used Ashland this summer. Using it last night left me wanty.

ROFL. When you mentioned spinning class in a previous post, I assumed you meant spinning like at the gym. So the first line of this post threw me for a loop for a second. Spinning without wheels! Hee.

Yay! Spinning! We should go to the Woolery sometime and test-drive wheels. I am thinking of an Ashford Kiwi.

Oooh, twist my arm. :) We should do that soap thing at some point, too.
