So, I thought I'd try composing a blog post on my iPad. Apparently, there is a learning curve, because I've already had to delete and start over!
My newest Handi-wind shuttle arrived in the mail yesterday, and I love it! Dave at Grizzly Mountain Arts made this little beauty. One of the things I really like about the Handi-wind shuttles is that I have something to hold on to while winding my thread... that, and they're just plain gorgeous!
I spent some tatting yesterday. Do you recognize the pattern? Yes, it's Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns. The thread is another Omega, a thread I'm really enjoying using.
I also spent some time playing with another spinning wheel... my new Ladybug! I've never spun on a wheel before, but I found a wonderful class at Craftsy, and I'm pretty confident about learning. I just need to learn to coordinate my hands and feet!
What will I do with a spinning wheel? Well, with all the weaving I've been doing lately, I'm really intrigued with fiber. I'm hoping to spin well enough to create bags with my own hand spun yarn!
In the meantime, I'll just keep working with the yarn I have on hand. :-)
So, what are my thoughts about composing a blog post on my iPad? It's a little awkward, but I that once I get used to it, it might be a lot faster!
Update: I like the way the pictures taken with my iPad turned out; however, I do not like the way the landscape pictures show up on the blog post. I guess I'll stick with my computer!
