Resolved: that my husband is the bestest.

16 May

Tech Support went to a garage sale in Molong yesterday, and lookit what he brought home for me:

A lovely little Ashford Traditional, in good working order, with four bobbins and a Lazy Kate. It needs oiling, and a new tension spring, but is otherwise a perfect vehicle for my descent to new depths of crazy.
See? I told you he was the bestest!

    Sweet!! I have no idea how to use one of these, but I love the look of yours. I wouldn’t mind having it sitting in my house just because. So pretty.

    he’s a keeper! Looks like a fun wheel, and you don’t need a spring, Abby Farqumont (?) or someone who really spins for a living uses a hook on the end of their tension line, and adds little weights (fish sinkers) to adjust the tension/break. I use use the line unweighted because I mostly spin lace weight, but saying give it a try with just something light tied/hooked (paperclipped?) to the end. (there are no spinning police) have fun.

    Awesome! And totally jealous. My hubby would possibly recognise a wheel but getting him to bring it home would mean he accepts he is lost in a yarny world from all angles, at the moment I think he is in denial!

    Looking forward to seeing your yarn creations, in face can’t wait!!

      Yeah, mine gave up that fight a while ago. Heh heh heh. The loom will probably have to wait until I have a dedicated room (which means once the boys have left home, or when we win lotto).
