In a spin

I have discovered many things about myself recently and one of them is that I tend to take too much on! On top of looking after my 3 girls including Eve who is only 10 weeks old I am, sewing 2 bridesmaids dresses and 3 boleros using a slippery satin which I haven’t done a lot of sewing with before, getting ready for the Handmade Hobart Markets on May 15th and 16th including sewing up some new designs, doing a test knit for a fellow raveler, AND I bought my first spinning wheel!

In between all my other business I have managed to make time to have a little spin on the wheel! Here are my first and second attempts. I was very uneven with my plying on my first but managed to fix that on my second.

I am very excited to see what else I can create when I get the time…but for now back to my sewing machine!


  1. That looks fantastic. Let me know if you are selling it!

  2. Looks gorgeous Meika, sounds like you are going well, don't the weeks go by so fast, can't believe eve is 10 weeks already! Hannah is 13 weeks tomorrow.

  3. The spinning looks great -I love the pink (suprise, suprise!)

    Nice to see you blogging again too

  4. If you are too busy I suppose I could take the wheel off your hands. I will be doing YOU a favour, so I think it only fair that I get paid a small fee for doing so... :D

    The yarn you created is fantastic, I expecially love the multicoloured one.
