It took a little practice to get used to the new spring, but I got better over Memorial Day weekend.

Spinning Out of Control
Last August, the day before teachers went back to school, I bought a spinning wheel for myself. I had wanted one for quite a while, done some research, and used my birthday money to get a steal of a deal on a Majacraft Saxonie. I was so excited to start using the wheel, then school started...This has been a particularly stressful year for me as a teacher. Between implementing the new Common Core curriculum, learning to do DIBELS reading assessments, a new math assessment, and taking care of my own family there has not been a great deal of time for knitting or spinning for myself. As the school year is winding down, I am trying to find time to do some of the things I really enjoy. A couple of weeks ago, I ordered some new tension springs for the wheel and installed one as soon as they arrived. (BTW The Woolery is a great place to order your fiber supplies. Prices are great and the shipping is very fast if the items are in stock.)
