Forgive me my fellow spinners, I did not spin this week. It was a flurry of traveling and then illness. I will be back at my wheel and finishing up Deb’s Must Spins soon.
Yesterday as I sat on the couch waiting for the antibiotics to kick in, my husband brought me this:
- A mysterious box with 12 year old for scale
I cracked that sucker open and
- There may have been an earsplitting shriek or two – the dog remains under the sofa
My Sidekick! I love that Schacht puts the directions right on top, no digging needed!
- Sidekick out of her box, handy 12 year old for scale.
It’s Lassie sized! Knee high-ish and cute. My husband couldn’t get over the mag wheel, “that’s so cool!”
- All the stuff
It comes with a carrying strap, an orifice hook and three of the new style plastic bobbins – I wish they came in rainbow colors.
- 7 year old boy treddling faster than the speed of sound
It took 10 minutes to set up using the directions, and it will take half that time once I have the steps memorized. She spins like a dream and is remarkably stable for a little wheel. I’ll do a real review in the Deep Fall issue of Knittyspin after I’ve been spinning on her for a bit.
Until then, imagine me smiling as big as Henry up there while I spin.
