Happy Birthday to me

Can it be?


Why yes, it is!


It took me a couple of years to ponder whether or not I wanted to take the plunge, but I’m glad now that I did. A spinning wheel is mine! New worlds of obsession fiber crafting await. I’ve only done a little bit of spinning on it so far – I suspect it may have to wait until my Sock Summit prep and Sock Summit itself is passed – but I’m very pleased to welcome my new Little Gem into my crafting life.

And since it’s my birthday, I’m going to play with my yarn now. I hope you get to do that too today.

But tomorrow – I promise – there will be an Autumn Rose finished sweater post. And just you wait and see it’s going to be LEGEN-

(wait for it…)


  1. Happy Birthday, and enjoy your new present!

  2. Many happy returns!

    Happy Birthday! Its a pretty spinning wheel. I got mine for my birthday too, and it was so much fun to get something in such a big box!

  7. Happy Birthday! Congrats on the new wheel. I have a Majacraft Suzie Pro. They are excellent wheels, if I do say so myself. Are you going to give it a name?

  8. …dary!

    Happy Birthday! Enjoy playing with yarn and your new wheel. Looking forward to the Autumn Rose post.

  9. Happy Birthday! So glad you took the plunge into spinning! I have to confess, I think I might like roving even more then I like yarn! I have a whole new component to my stash now! Enjoy!

  10. Happy fibery birthday!!

  11. Happy birthday! Have tonnes of fun with your new baby!

  12. Happy birthday! Your present to yourself is lovely and I’m sure you’re going to have so much fun with it! Can’t wait to see Autumn Rose!

  14. Happy, happy birthday!

  15. Happy Birthday!!! Nice way to celebrate…

  16. Happy birthday! I’m sort of glad I’ve not caught the spinning bug (yet). The yarn is already taking over my guest room closet and several nooks and crannies elsewhere, and I have no clue where a wheel would find room.

  20. Happy Birthday and I can’t wait to see your Autumn Rose!

  21. Welcome to the LG family – have you named her yet?

    Of my two wheels, my LG Lillith is my favourite but don’t tell my Victoria Lucille – they argue something fierce over my ficke affections!

  22. Yay! another one bites the dust! heh.
    Happy Birthday!

  23. Happy Birthday! Eventually, I will give in and get myself one too.

  24. Happy Birthday!!! I’m sorry I was such a bad influence/enabler…except maybe I’m not 😉
