For the last several months there has been a severe lack of “spinnage” around here. I had a fall on the back porch early in the spring and it caused a flood of back and hip problems. Using a treadle would work great for about 10 minutes and then it was over.. 😦 We have finally got things almost worked out with the back, but I find that I still cannot use the treadle for any length of time.
Sooo.. a new form of an old hobby had to be found. My husband called me into the office one day and said ” Here’s the one you’ll get!” … It was the Hansen Mini E-Spinner. I looked at it and instantly liked it just from the pictures and the You Tube videos. But I decided to look around a little more… and more.. and more. But I didn’t find any that I liked any better. So here it is.. 🙂
I have to admit that it took a bit of getting used to.. With my treadle I could slow down, speed up and control everything with my foot. Not so with this. I realize it will take a while to grow accustomed to the new way of doing things with the speed control and since I’ve only had it 3 days I think it may take a bit longer.. 🙂
Here’s another view showing the Woolee Winder that I decided to get with it.
The Woolee Winder is another product that I’ve found I love. There are no hills and valleys in the yarn on the bobbin. The smooth uptake allows much more yarn on the bobbin and I find that the bobbins are bigger than the normal ones.
By the way, I am in NO way associated with either of these products other than I have purchased them and I love them.. 🙂
The weather is still hot here in North Texas. We’re having a cold front move through today and the temp will only hit 98° . 🙂 But that’s ok. We had a wonderful visit from our son and daughter in law from Michigan and the happy index around here skyrocketed.. 😉
Have a lovely day today..
