What do you do with a new Spinning Wheel?

I go balls out spinning-crazy, heavily influenced by Laura (Mommy of Maya's BFF) owner and operator of Slipped Stitch Studios on Etsy.

See, other than making the sweetest kid ever she also makes these awesome draw string bags, and mi patterns, and swift bags, and pattern magnets and pithy buttons and pretty much any cool knitting related thing you can think of. Any way she has the famously discontinued Knitmare fabric and sells quite a lot of it in her shop.

So I've been spinning and dyeing and beading yarn to match.

And then spinning more yarn to match.

And a few more.
I can't seem to stop spinning on my new Lendrum folding DT. I've had to limit myself to spinning around my secret magazine knitting deadline which has been sort of like limiting ice tea, chocolate cake, or you know, oxygen.

So it's been really awesome to have Lisa help me bring my patterns to life by sample knitting. Hands off ladies, she's mine.

    oohhh, such awesome yarn! I love Slipped Stitch studios and have a few of her bags/pattern magnets/ buttons.
    need a sample/test knitter? I have tons of experience!
