Progress Update from guest blogger Jeff

Progress has been slow, but that's due to Mother's Day coming up soon and the fact that I gotta get my momma's leg warmers done. Plus it's Sheep & Wool weekend (we met Andee!) so that means lots of time for shopping and little time for knitting.


Going back tomorrow for a sheep breed walkabout with Deb Robson. And maybe shelling out some money for an antique great wheel like this one. :)

  3. DON'T BUY ONE. My sister has one as a decoration in her kitchen over her cabinets. Yes that is how we decorate. I am sure we can tote it out to you. You will just need the lessons. She won't mind and my cousin lives close by to you guys and they have a margartia machine so I am pretty sure it won't be hard to loaded in our pick up and head west. Or it won't be hard to convince my husband to head West with the promise of Tequila on the other end.

    2. Hee hee. I also meant to add above you might have to make my sister an offer on hers first. So MAYBE buy one :) She might need some parts for the one she has. But really before you buy one you might want to give her an offer on the one she has.
