One Crazy Fiber Lady


May 5th, 2010 · 3 Comments

The new girl and I have been doing sone bonding over the last two nights. What with the baseball season in full swing and MLB Extra Innings on Fios, I’ve been spinning while watching the Sox battle the A’s.

Notice I did a little rearranging of the wheels in the corner of my bedroom. The CPW is In the corner that the Reeves and Van Eaton used to occupy. I found that if I sit sideways on the pang chair that i can easily treadle the wheel with my left foot and see the tv :). Here she is in her corner.


The fiber I am spinning is some superwash merino that I bought from Carolyn (Seekay). The color way is Campfire.

I finished the first bobbin (2oz) last night. Look closely at the wear marks on this flyer. This wheel has seen some significant use over the years!

After finishing this bobbin, I pulled out the best friend of a wheel with only one bobbin: the electric bobbin winder. I used one of my Schacht bobbins temporarily while I wait for the cardboard storage bobbins that ordered to arrive.


I’m ready to do the second two ounces tonight 🙂

Craft on!

    She’s so pretty. I want a CPW pretty badly now. I just have to wait for more clients to come back, the economy to turn around, or the gods to smile on me. Someday.

    I love the fiber too.

    Where did you find cardboard storage bobbins. I have scoured the ends of the earth (or so I thought) and had to settle on Schact shuttle bobbins. Any direction is appreciated. ~ksp
