I did It!

I stayed up late last night with my wheel. I think I got it figured out. I just needed a piece of tape. One of the tension things kept slipping so I put a small piece of gaffers tape over the top of the peg and it works! Gaffers tape really can fix anything! and it won't leave any sticky stuff on the wood. I spun about half a bobbins worth last night but had to stop around 2 am cuz I just couldn't see straight anymore. Today I'm going to the library to pick up some spinning books and see what I do next. Maybe I'll have some hand spun to show later this week!

I just want to add here that the kindness of bloggers amazes me. Ms Snark sent me lots of pictures I had not found yet and told me I did not need the Scotch tension thing I am missing. That she would take time out of her day to help me Rocks! Thanks again! and thanks to the gals at knit night for cheering me on.

Well I am off to spin some more.

Oh, please! You are so worth any effort! Which reminds me, could you email me your address because my efforts to find it and send you some Xmas goodies have been thwarted. yes, I know the address was on the box you just sent me. Did I keep the box? Did I think to write down your address?

Le Sigh.

I love that you fixed a spinning wheel with gaffers tape. That cracks me up.
