You may remember a while back I won the Spindle and Wheel blog contest. Well, here’s what I got:
2.5oz of Merino and Soysilk. It’s very soft. I’d attach a piece to the blog for you to feel but technology isn’t there yet…
I got some “grab bag” wool blend that is also quite soft.
I got a very pretty handmade spindle:
Sadly, I haven’t tried it yet. Or the wrist distaff that came with it:
When I do finally try them, I’ll give a review.
Allena also sent me a orifice hook (which I’ll still need with my new wheel) / plying tool:
and some very pretty stitch markers:
Even the one I managed to cut out of the picture is pretty.
I know there’s that whole “post every day” thing going on that has more letters in it that I’m capable of remembering right now, but I think I’m not quite up to posting every day. HOWEVER, I am aiming to post every OTHER day. I enjoy blogging. I kind of miss it but much like when I first started, it’s a little hard find things to talk about right now so please just bear with me if you get a short silly post about something now and again instead of a deep meaningful post.
