There are so many big flat surfaces on the frame of the wheel that it just cries out for stickers or decals or some sort of decoration. The only complaint I can muster is that it stinks. Literally. The oil they used to finish the wood is mighty smelly. I've had it out of the box for a couple of weeks now, and I can still smell it when I first sit down to spin. I'm hoping that will get all aired out soon.
The basement at the yarn store seems to be no longer leaky, so I've started setting up the dye workshop area down there, and I plan to order the first batch of undyed yarn next week. The only thing I was freaking out about was that there is no spin-cycle washer down there to help get all the excess water out of things before hanging them to dry. I wasn't looking forward to all the mopping up and dripping etc. Well, today I found this thing online:
It's a little spin-dryer! If you want one, you can get it here.
OK, I'm also freaking out a little bit over my lack of a motorized skein-winder to help on things that will need to be re-skeined. Anyone got a recomendation there?
