I feel like a kid who's been let loose in the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory...
... like a gardener who has been given a gift of endless flowers.....
... like a.. well, .... a rock star who's just won an Emmy (okay, that one is a bit of an exaggeration....)
it's been almost a year and a half since I have been able to spin, and last night I decided that it was time.
I popped my favorite chick flick into my computer, fired up my Windows Media Player, and sat down at my trusty old Schacht...
... and I spun.
I tell you, absolute joy.
There was more than a brief moment of dancing about the house, pretending I was Gene Kelly doing his famous "Singing in the Rain" dance... there was toasting the sky with a glass of deep red Cabernet.. and then I settled back in and spun some more.
I began with a bit of a warm up on some nameless lamb's wool that I had on my wheel from a year ago, and then plunged right back into some colonial Superwash (its the same fiber I used to dye for my Sock Hop superwash....)
and I am now sporting a grin from ear to ear.
My hand is a bit sore and achy this morning, but nothing that I can't live with. (fine motor movements like writing or spinning still hurts) yet I can do it!!
Woo hoo... it's about as wonderful as going to Carnegie Hall !!
I'm a happy little spinner.
It's time to bask in the sunshine, of a hobby that I can play with once again - and my Emily agrees
