Yes, I went for the mitts, even though they were not technically finished until last Friday night. Much too warm at the festival though to be worn, but next week promises to be much cooler here :-)
I have to admit that the crazy business of the last month since Fryeburg Fair finally caught up with me and set me right on my butt. I feel as though I have had a good a** whooping that left me completely exhausted! Life has a funny way of doing that to us now and then, doesn't it?
I took the week to do very little other than what I really needed to do and spent some quality time spinning, knitting and watching our Red Sox move into the World Series with a bang........and it has all been good.
Whilst I didn't finish my hat for Rhinebeck, it now is finished and ready to be felted tomorrow, just in time to greet little Trick O Treaters.....so really, it is still all good, no?
I was hesitant in putting up too much information about this wheel, as I do like to keep some things closer to home, but given that she has spun herself onto many websites and given much joy, I felt better about sharing.
Seven years ago, I plunked down my money in hopes that one day I could be the proud owner of a beautiful Norwegian Norm Hall wheel. This wheel that Norm refers to as Moriah has been officially dubbed here at my house as Moriah Anne, for reasons of my own. It suits her.
This is the most incredible wheel that I could have ever hoped to own. Made of cherry and finished exquisitely as any well made piece of high end furniture, she literally sings as she spins. I feel incredibly blessed to own this beautiful wheel and to all of you who not only spun on her, but cheered me on in raising the remaining part of the balance owed on her.........Thank you!
