So you want to…

<p>…hear about my weekend?</p><p>First, there was a spinning class on Thursday <a href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1532&amp;entry_id=221" title="http://www.countrywool.com" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.countrywool.com’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;" target="_blank">here</a>. Claudia is very patient and talented and I managed to grasp the concept of wheel spinning pretty quickly. I rented an Ashford Joy from her for a month and so far we are getting along just swimmingly. Here she is relaxing in my living room:</p><p><a onclick="F1 = window.open(‘/uploads/Photos/06-20-06004.jpg’,’Zoom’,’height=351,width=463,top=216,left=288,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resize=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes’); return false;" href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/06-20-06004.jpg" class="serendipity_image_link"><img width="175" height="131" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/06-20-06004.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a> <a onclick="F1 = window.open(‘/uploads/Photos/06-20-06006.jpg’,’Zoom’,’height=463,width=351,top=160,left=344,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resize=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes’); return false;" href="uploads/Photos/06-20-06006.jpg" class="serendipity_image_link"><img width="131" height="175" src="uploads/Photos/06-20-06006.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a> </p><p><a onclick="F1 = window.open(‘/uploads/Photos/06-20-06008.jpg’,’Zoom’,’height=351,width=463,top=216,left=288,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resize=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes’); return false;" href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/06-20-06008.jpg" class="serendipity_image_link"><img width="175" height="131" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/06-20-06008.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></a></p><p /><p /><p /><p /><p>That is the BFL from Foxfire Farms that I bought at Cummington – not too shabby, eh?</p><p>I also spun this:</p><p><a class="serendipity_image_link" href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/06-20-06010.jpg" onclick="F1 = window.open(‘/uploads/Photos/06-20-06010.jpg’,’Zoom’,’height=351,width=463,top=216,left=288,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resize=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes’); return false;"><img width="175" height="131" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/06-20-06010.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></p><p>The left is Merino/Silk and the right is Corriedale. I plan on plying them together tomorrow. The Corriedale is a bit bigger now, I found another piece of roving hiding under the coffee table tonight. I spun it and now it sits waiting…</p><p>Of course, I also have to go to a town meeting tomorrow to vote on a new fire truck. This is assuming that I am back on the voter rolls and am allowed to vote. The clerk is still blaming me, btw. Supposedly I told her my address was a PO Box – even though I’ve lived here for six years and never had a PO Box. She’s insane. </p><p>Anyway, because I will be showing support for my local fire department I will not have time to ply tomorrow. Which sucks :o( You know what also floors me? The people who do not want to support the purchase of a new truck – they’re all up in arms about the expense, etc. I wonder how they’d feel if their house was on fire and the truck that the Department has currently didn’t start to go save their McMansion…? I bet they’d be playing a different tune…</p><p>But I digress…</p><p>And I’ve digressed so much that this post is a bit long – I’ll tell you tomorrow about where I went last weekend ;o) I bet you can’t wait. </p><p>In the meantime I have a question for you spinners out there. I am now in the market for a wheel of my own – other than the very good advice of trying them all or at least as many as I can possibly get my hands on, do you have any pearls of wisdom regarding a favorite brand/model? If it helps, I tend to spin a little on the thin side and like spinning and knitting fingering/sport weight.</p><p /><p /><p />
