Spinning Wheel....

We went to breakfast early yesterday to say "good bye" to John and Tracy who are relocating to Hemet. What a surprise when John walked us out and over to the rear of his Durango, opened the hatch and lifted out an antique spinning wheel. He said that I could probably use it...I have not really launched into spinning yet. This just might push me over the edge. What do you think? It appears to have been made by "John H" in 1840.

My Camp Crow's Foot project was mailed on Friday and should arrive this Wednesday at Rosario Resort on Orcas Island. In theory, the two boxes will be held for me at the front desk until I arrive. Fingers crossed that all will be there on April 14th for the unveiling. Sorry no sneak peeks.

The Gentleman Socks are coming along and should be finished by the end of this week. I am currently sorting through patterns and sock yarn to select my next project. These will be Cancun Socks as they will come along to the Riviera Maya...

Off to make my reservations for the pre-camp yarn that I have communicated with other crawlers to coordinate lodgings. It is going to be way too much fun, I fear!

Wonderful wheel! I don't know if I could still spin but I sometimes feel like I'd like to do it again. I had a handmade wheel but it was no where near as old as that one.

I want to see more pictures of the secret project. I hope you're pleased with how it came out.

Looking forward to seeing you this week sometime.
