Well I was actually planning and had been looking for a used fine cloth drum carder. But last week as I was checking Craig’s list for the umpteenth time I came across a Lendrum ST for a great price. I thought about it all night. You rarely see Lendrum wheels come up for sale second hand. It seems like every time I spin on my wheel during open studio I am asked about lessons.
Not having a second wheel kind of precluded giving lessons, so with this one practically throwing itself at me, I emailed the seller to see if it was still available having be up for sale for almost a month. Sure enough it was, and it was only a 20 minute drive from my house. So Friday after work I drove up and picked it up.
It’s a older model, but I am sure my bobbins will fit. She also had one of the older lazy kates which look much nicer than the one I got with mine. I look forward to giving it a ‘spin’. (hehe)
Saturday was supposed to be a nasty rainy cold day, but the sun came out early and stayed out all day – it was just beautiful. Unfortunately I had schedule hair appointments for me and DD in the mall that afternoon. I thought about canceling but my hair was just awful. So I got it all cut off – lots of layers, and with my hair texture and waves it looks like I just came off the beach. (Translation- comb in the morning with a little product and no need to do anything with your hair again all day.)
I also need to color it desperately so I decided to throw caution to the wind and went a shade lighter than my normal reddish blond, Then on a whim I decided to go for the gusto (translation double process – remember those days?) and grabbed a hair frosting kit too. DD helped me pull my hair through the cap to add the blonde highlights. I have to say I love, love, love it. Patty is going to be so jealous!
Sunday, only Jen and I made it to Peddler’s Daughter – the Magner’s was delicious and we had a lot of laughs.
Only two weekends to the CT Sheep and Wool festival and The Harlot at Webs. Who is going? Carpooling?
