a big spindle

I think my pictures show my large purchase well.

Excuse the happy dog being good and sitting for a photo. He just happened to be in photo mood. I also could not get him to move, stubborn dog. If you click the picture you can see all sorts of other pictures. I am up in the right hand corner, but a bit blurry.

This is not the first bobbin I spun. That one is a bit chaotic.

We drove home and I sung "bought a spinning wheel, bought a spinning wheel, I bought a spiiiiiiiiiiinning wheel today. Its exciting, its exciting, its terrribleeeeeeee exciting. Gonna spin, gonna spin, gonnnaaaaaaaaaaaa spin some wool today" all the way home.

I have been knitting to. Knitting socks and froggin sweaters. What can you make with 800 yrds of charcoal grey cotton?
