In the interest of full disclosure, meet Lucy, my new wheel.
I’ve been spinning for, what? 3 months? And, yes, I bought a second wheel. I feel a little guilty about Alice, but she and I had a talk and she agreed that riding in the back of the Jeep just isn’t all that fun for her and she’d just as soon be the wheel that stays at home. And, since I really wanted something portable to take to spinning guilds and parties and such, I just had to buy the Lendrum. Cuz you just never know when a spinning guild or party or such might be on the horizon. I’m just saying.
The Woolery is having a special (buy the wheel, get the carrying bag for free) and Risa (she’s so naughty) hooked me up. I decided to try the double treadle this time, and, while I think I’m still most comfortable with the single treadle, it’s good to learn both. You know me, it’s all about being flexible.
Clearly, I’ve been putting Lucy through her paces. And, she’s doing just fine, as evidenced by this lovely BFL in Mardi Gras from Lisa Souza.
Good stuff, that. I’d recommend you give it a go.
Finally, on a political note, did you hear what Newt Gingrich said about the Abramoff scandal? He said, “You can’t have a corrupt lobbyist without a corrupt member [of congress].” I can’t believe I’m agreeing with Newt, but, ummm. Yeah.
