Santa has visited :-)

Santa Claus came early to my house this year, although he wasn't expected. Last Friday a mystery box arrived - open up ...

My new spinning wheel, a week early! All unpacked and assembled it looked like this:

I didn't get much chance to spin on the weekend as I was working, but Monday was a day off and in the afternoon I set to to spin up the hand-dyed rovings I bought from my friend Claire ages ago. She had very thoughtfully dyed them in even colour repeats so I simply split each section and spun them one after another in order. Looking at the colours reminds me of why I said "I'll have those!" as soon as she had posted the picture.

After a quick navaho ply last night, and an evening on the needles, I have one Fetching :-) way to go Joy!

This is one awesome Christmas present. Thanks very much to hubby Neil, and Michelle and Nathalie from work who all put in for the purchase.
