So…uh…

wheel.jpg

Okay. Yes, I’ve been holding out on you. Only for a night! I swear! We needed to get acquainted. How would you feel if you were blogged by a complete stranger?

My camera is out of batteries, so I can’t show you my first single (still on the wheel), the drum carder, or detail shots. Sorry! I’ll take care of it later…if I feel like it. =D

(Oh, and by the way Moom Froggy, if you give away one more post before I even begin it, I’m going to lock you in a closet, take away your Frog Jam (although I guess I’d also be putting you into a Frog Jam…) and block your IP address. =D )

I am in love. It is an Ashford Traditional, and belonged to the mother of the lady across the street. I was looking at wheels anyway, but this one was the right price (definitely, definitely, definitely the right price) at the right time.

I should have taken the full-sized loom, too…*

*Before anyone tries to tell me it’s good that I didn’t and why, I would like to let you know that I have thought it through myself, and that my reasons are better than any you can give me. Yes, I know how large a commitment a full-sized loom is, and that is exactly why I passed it up. The real reason, rather than the superficial reasons of space and money. Sorry, but if one more person tries to act like I don’t know anything about fiber arts because I’m not an old lady, I think I’m going to spin their hair *still attached* and then strangle them with it. Just walk away on this issue.

    kayak woman, control yourself and control your frog. hijacking my comments is not an option and definitely an excuse for making REAL frog jam.

    Back on track…

    The wheel is absolutely gorgeous – the wood has a beautiful sheen to it, has an almost 3-D look to the graining…and the color is beautiful – appears from the photo to have been well cared for during its life.

    Good selection!!

    Sorry to get on the hijack track, but I have to add two more frog jokes. It is a beautiful spinning wheel – looking forward to more pix!

    What’s white and green and white? No, not the Spartan Marching Band, Val!

    What’s brown and green and brown?

    A: A frog sandwich on toast!
