WARNING: Self pitying whinge in progress!!!
OK, I am feeling very sorry for myself because I cant spin on a wheel. My ankles wont let me (long boring medical story) and it just isnt FAIR!!! Stamping feet and pouting are going on here. I am off to Woolfest and I will have to ogle all these lovely wheel, shake my head sadly and walk away (with my stick in my hand)
I love the way wheels look, the faint whirring sound they make, the feel of the wood, everything - but I cant use one.
I dont want an electric one (adopt whiny tired toddler voice here) I dont want a Charkha (been there, tried that, the spindles are too small and the ratios too high)
I feel a serious sulk coming on to get it out of my system before the spin-in where I will be surrounded by wonderful wheels and - even worse - people SPINNING with them.
I love my spindles and can (and do) use them everywhere, but DAMMITT - I WANT A WHEEL TOO!!!
OK, and relax, breathe and think of your blessings woman - rant/whinge over.............thanks for listening LOL
