We built the Country Spinner 2 this afternoon. When I say “we” it was mostly Gill – whilst I impeded her progress with my request for camera angles. It took around an hour and a half and I shall be documenting the process on the blog soon – we thought it might be useful for the more nervous potential spinner to see just how easy it is to knock up a spinning wheel in the odd free moment…
When we were done, we decided that we needed a comparison shot with the Traveller, to show that the Country is not really all that large. Then we thought it would be a good idea to add the wee E-spinner in too. So now I am imagining the wheels as Papa Wheel, Mama Wheel, and Little Baby Wheel.
Please avert your gaze from the state of my workroom.
The Country bobbin is ginormous. The Traveller has a standard flyer and bobbin on, and the E-spinner has the Jumbo bobbin as provided at purchase.
I am feeling a little bit rubbish today so the blog post won’t come along this evening. I’m heading for a hot soak and an early night. It has been an odd sort of a day, with much activity but little achievement. That situation has not been helped by my recent introduction to DigitalRev – not just the source of my new camera but also a social site for photographers. I have been uploading images and making new contacts.
