When you don't blog for as long as I have you need a catchy title to suck everyone back in.
Now that I have your attention I tried spinning last night. You all knew it was just a matter of time before I got my hands on a wheel. I met a spinner at Art in the Park last month and I asked her a bunch of questions about spinning and about wheels and what not. The long and the short of it is she invited me to the monthly gathering of spinners here in the Loops.
Annette was so thoughtful, she came by and picked me up for the meeting. She brought an extra wheel and some roving so that I could give it a try. There were only 5 women there including myself, it was a perfect size gathering to learn in.
Here is my first spindle:
It's not pretty but I am totally happy with it. I went expecting a very steep learning curve and brought my knitting along in case I just got to frustrated to get it. Due to my incredibly low expectations I was thrilled with what I managed to produce and how much a learned in only a couple of hours.
Where does the heroin come in...I NEED a wheel, right now. I can't wait to try it again. I am going to try and be patient and try as many wheels as I can before making the plunge. But I NEED a wheel right now, how else will I get better????

When I got home Sherri (baby sitter) and I watched Wednesday night's episode of Rock Star Supernova I am addicted to this show. We were wondering how old Tommy Lee is so I googled him and found that there link that you just clicked on. It makes for some interesting reading including some speculation about the size of Tommy's junk. This made me a bit curious and I googled a bit trying to find out, ahh, more information (yeah, that's it). While surfing for nude photos of Tommy Lee a pop up menu (no pun intended) comes up on my laptop. It was a viral warning.
My laptop contracted a STD while surfing for nude photos of Tommy. No need to worry the virus has been quarantined and my laptop is properly gloved up for this post. It's not contagious...Honest.
