The one thing I have not been able to do with Mr. Nasty Gallbladder on board was to bend forward without pain. Terrible pain. The wheels have been out of the question and so is the loom and the drum carder. All my favorite toys have been sitting idly by waiting for this giant ache under my ribs to go away. My last visit to the ER resulted in my being given some mild pain meds so I have managed to sit a few minutes at a time to spin on a project or two. This is the new Ladybug with the 100% Peruvian wool from Knit Picks that I dyed in figgy colors a few weeks ago. As advertised, it is very easy to spin. It is so reasonably priced, beginners could buy a ton of it to experiment with and not feel too bad about their first wonky bits. You get 100 grams which is a lot of wool for only $2.89. You would pay $15-$20 for this same stuff that someone has already dyed for you on Etsy. I will easily be able to get a pair of socks or mittens out of it with leftovers. What a deal.
