Feeling some what better

My back isn't quite as bad today. I still need some 800mg Ibuprofen but I'm not having spasms. I want to thank everyone for the well wishes. It still overwhelms me to know that people actually read what I have to say and care so much. It means more than words can say, thank you all!

My DH had a great time at "my" knitting last night. He was quite excited when he got home. He got a chance to show off his sweater too. I'm glad he enjoyed himself, he deserves a little fun now and then! Last night also taught him a valuable lesson... when knitting in a group you have to pay extra attention or you end up with extra stitches on you needle.

I have a spinning question for those who are in the know. I plyed my handspun using a couple of US10 needles ran thru a shoebox last time. It worked okay but not great. Would a Lazy Kate work better? Can I control the tension using a Lazy Kate? I guess the easiest way to figure this out would be to get a Lazy Kate and that is what I will probably do. One other question would be does everyone use a spinning chair or do you just sit on whatever? They make it sound like the spinning chair is the greatest thing... is it?

Once again, thanks for all the comments... I love comments! Hope everyone has a nice Wednesday.

Even though I have a wheel, I pretty much just knit, but my good friend who spins more than anybody I know swears by a Lazy Kate. We have talked about the chair when I have spun at her house before and she has a regular chair that is just the right size and pretty much only spins in it - maybe it just depends on your height. Oh - and this is funny - I was catching up on reading blogs, and I swear I wrote my entry this morning before I read yours, but then I just read your yesterday's entry and you were using the "on the knitting front" kick too. I thought it was a funy coincedence. Hope your back is better!

You can ply on your Joy though! I've done it on mine without any bother. I know others have said it is easier to do it on a Lazy Kate, but never having used one before I don't know. On my spinning lesson day, Wendy just taught me to use what I had and it turned out fine. If you need a little lesson, email me and I'll attempt a little lesson...now that could be hilarious!

Hey Erica! I'm so sorry your back is out. Thanks for the concern about me being away. Were having some computer problems, I think they're fixed now. I hope to post soon. Abby
