Although I was hoping that my new wheel would arrive on Friday, it's probably a good thing it didn't. I was able to finish two projects for my class and outline a new course I'm teaching next year.

I wasn't let down on Monday though!

After a few tense moments - from missing lines in the instructions to not knowing what some things were - it came together beautifully. Today I went over it with some superfine steel wool. All it needs is a little tung oil and I'm ready to spin!

Whitby update: I'm ready to divide for the sleeves. I'm loving this pattern.

    I was just wondering about your wheel and decided to check your blog for an update. I bet you're doing the Happy Dance!

  2. OMG! A new wheel! A gorgeous new wheel! Happy spinning Char :-)

  3. I love assembling my wheels - can't wait to see it in action! The Whitby color is gorgeous.

  4. That is so exciting! Congrats on the new wheel!
