List of equipment I am thankful for:
- My e-spinner(s) – I have two of them – from Hansencrafts. One, with a WoolieWinder, is dedicated to plying, the other, with the lace flyer, I use for – well, everything from thread-weight singles to supercoils. A special shout-out to Kevin and Beth. While cleaning the woolly winder, I lost a teeny piece and with no advance notice, drove to Port Townsend where, non-plussed, they took care of it. Thank you both.
- My Crazy Monkey Electric Swift and manual Reskeiner. Again, I have two. Ben was so patient with me as I assembled them both, answering my questions immediately and kindly. I use the motorized skeiner for prepping my yarn for dying, the reskeiner for measuring and finishing the skein.
- My laundry spinner. It lives outside, even in the winter, so I can just walk out the laundry room where I dye when I can’t use the greenhouse, place the sopping wet yarn in, and, “without agitating”, spin it almost dry. Amazing.
- My seam ripper(s). I like the Clover because it stays sharp and because of it’s handle. I have several in every room I work in, and use them for (surprise!) ripping seams in the old sweaters.
