Merry Christmas to me!

December 28, 2006 at 6:27 pm | Posted in General Knitting | 5 Comments

So, I’m home from my Christmas trip… Well, I actually got home yesterday. I had a great trip.

Look what my mom and dad gave me for Christmas:

 Yay! A spinning wheel of my very own! The other one I was using was borrowed, and it was pretty old. But, this one is brand new, and it’s all mine! It’s an Ashford Kiwi, and so far, I love it. Aint it cute? I filled up a bobbin already, but I have a problem:

 I can’t figure out how to get the bobbin off. The instruction booklet I got wasn’t for this specific wheel, and it was already assembled when I got it, so I don’t know how to get it off. Can anyone help me? Anyone know how? I’ll keep fiddling with it and see If I can do it, but If you know how, please let me know.

Edited to Add: Never mind! My dad helped me figure it out. I’m off to go spin!
