Aggie one year ago today (she's the third one down from the top):
Happy 1st Birthday, Girl! She's been my buddy and constant companion while Dan's been away. I'm going to have start training her to sleep with the boys.... in a couple of months.... Take a trip down memory lane through my archives and you can watch how Aggie grew into such a pretty girl.
Sometimes I come up with a really good idea. It's not often but it's usually really good when it happens. I've wanted a Woolee Winder since I first heard about them. I'm *terrible* about remembering to move my yarn on the flyer hooks. So I finally ordered one a few months ago and I couldn't be more excited about just spinning and spinning and not stopping, though that took a long time to remember. I kept stopping at first out of habit:
When I was getting ready to order it I got to thinking.... How about if I contact Nels at Babe's Fiber Garden and see if he can make the electric spinner to fit the woolee winder that Nathan was making for my Majacraft Rose. He was great about it! He and Nathan worked together. When Nathan finished the winder he sent it to Nels. Nels made my electric winder to fit and and sent it on to me. I'm a very happy girl.
Instead of paying for a whole second flyer, I can just switch this one back and forth between my wheel and the electric spinner. I wanted the electric one for trips and such. It's so easy to stuff in a bag and be out the door. It's taking some practice, but I'll figure it out. I bought the dimmer switch but it doesn't work with the transformer over here. Once I get back to the States next year all should be well.
