One Crazy Fiber Lady

Having now spent a couple of nights with the new Lendrum, I can truly say that I’m really happy I picked it up.  I really did miss having one in the stable and with her multiple ratios and flyer options, she’s far more versatile than any of the other portable wheels I’ve been playing with in my quest for the holy grail.  Of course, this wheel is bigger and heavier than most of the other options, but with the carry bag might just do the trick.  I happen to have the carry bag since I bought it for the Wee Robin (which will probably be looking for a new home shortly).  While the super fast flyer would be a nifty addition, I don’t know if I really need it, but then I didn’t need the Lendrum at all 😉  I finished up the first bobbin of the mystery purple bonus wool last night.

Does how I packed this bobbin bother anyone?

I realized that I never posted my favorite calendar picture from April.  This made me smile every time I saw it, and I saw it a lot as the calendar hangs on the wall in my bathroom 🙂  It was the reason I bought this calendar at all.


Craft on!

    Oh, I still much prefer the Wee Robin to the Lendrum! (Which I sold to Margene years ago!) I spin on the Robin, with those huge bobbins, then rewind onto WooLee Winder bobbins (I have 12), and ply back onto the Robin. It's the BEST for plying! I wouldn't give it up yet 🙂

    Marcia, I like the Wee Robin, but I've had my disagreements with the Irish Tension. I really do like the size of it. I'm not in a rush to move the Wee along but she might get evicted from the carry bag 😉
