Thank you, Mr. Daniels!

I must thank Dave Daniels of Cabin Cove for spinning up this beautiful yarn for me out of some roving that I had bought way back when I first attempted spinning. I decided that there was no way that I was going to be spinning any time soon since I had attempted it in a class and failed so miserably, so I sent the roving to him... he spun it on his Kromski Mazurka (in walnut finish just like my new wheel!) and sent it to me wrapped in beautiful tissue, pinned with his CUTE "Cabin Cove Mercantile" pin (I want to know where he had these pins made; they're adorable!) and labeled with the type of fiber, yardage, etc. on a super nice little printed card - he even included a little lavender packet - he thinks of everything! OH! so, as everyone now knows, after sending all my roving stash to Dave, I decided to buy a spinning wheel of my very own - it's kind of funny that it wasn't until AFTER I rid myself of all my roving that I found my wheel - I always said though; when it's right, I'll know it; and the time was right for my wheel.

Thank You, Dave - for the beautiful yarn - I don't know what it's going to become... for now, it's sitting in my room and I'm admiring the skill and thoughtfulness you put into it just for me :)
I'm glad I met you online and I am thankful that I have the chance to know you. Check out his store - if you see something you like, buy it - and if you're interested in beautiful hand spun yarn - email him; I'm sure he'll make something just for you as well!

Thanks, Kyle, I'm glad you like it! You're going to love spinning, too, I can tell. One hint: Don't spin crappy fibers! Always use the good stuff. It'll MAKE you concentrate on proper spinning techniques. And practice, practice, practice.
