Good luck convincing the hubby you need an "official" wheel!  I sure hope he goes for it!  It'll be nice to have options, when it comes to using a wheel.  What wheel are you thinking of, Rodelphia?
it was an antique one that a friend saw in a shop and told me about. we went to look at it today and it was missing so many parts that it wasn't worth what they were asking for it. Sad think i might save some money and get a newer one. i'm thinking i might go with Heavenly Handspinning, but i can't decide which wheel i like best. Tongue

I have the Stella from Heavenly Handspinning!

Great yarns! I'm loving all the colors.

Here's what I've been up to...

superwash merino / bamboo / nylon 60/30/10
Dyed and spun by me. I'm knitting it into a lacy scarf as a gift.

This one is finished but it isn't light enough to photo yet. Smiley

Here's a sneak peek of my astrology assignment. I dyed it and will be spinning it to art yarn. I posted this in the most recent fiber friday, linking to this craft-along. Smiley Oh, and I finished getting sorted on Pottermore and ended up in Gryffindor although I was hoping for Ravenclaw.. haha oh well.

Finished this one some time last week... currently working on a second skein (both 4oz+). I'm spinning this for someone who sent me the fiber, which is superwash BFL dyed by bee mice elf.

And this one I just dyed, 100% polwarth wool. It's going to turn into my first art yarn for the HP craftalong.

I'd like to join in! I signed up for Pottermore (FINALLY), when do I get sorted? Regardless, I'm supporting Ravenclaw! I'll be working on an Astronomy assignment in the next couple of days.

This is long overdue, I got caught up with finals and such. Here's my amazing package from beccas_song! She got her inspiration straight from my Pinterest boards. Smiley

- panda sleep mask! I got one in another swap but the more, the better. Smiley These really help me sleep since the neighbors across the street keep their side light on and it goes straight through my window and into my face when I lie on my bed. So annoying!
- delicious smelling handmade soap
- AWESOME circuit board wallet
- SUPER CUTE panda camera bag, full of lace (LOVE!), and the spare fabric
- earrings and matching pins. These are SO cool. I have pierced ears and normally don't wear earrings but I HAVE to wear these.

A lovely damask (my favorite print!) clutch/purse:

She also baked me delicious peanut butter chocolate goodies! They're in the fridge right now (the weather is melting HOT right now) so I'll try to get a picture later.

Thank you for everything! Smiley

Sent today! Hope you like everything Shannin!

Thanks, I'm excited!

Updating my status... I'm done with my first two mediums and I'm trying to figure out what to finish off with! My partner is actually in the process of moving so I hope everything works out smoothly when sending time comes.

I finished knitting and blocking a scarf made from my handspun:
