I've been knitting for the majority of my life, but always bought yarn ready-to-knit, as most knitters probably do. I have wondered about spinning my own yarn, but I've never really wanted to either buy a drop spindle (very slow?) or buy a wheel (expensive!). And I kept telling myself I had more than enough yarn already, so I shouldn't need to spin my own yarn. Well, based on this post's title, I bet you can figure out what happened. I bought an electric eel! Not the animal, but the spinning wheel. They're mini e-spinners made by Dreaming Robots , and meant to be affordable and portable wheels. Update: I made a YouTube video about the EEW Nano !

I've wanted to make myself a robe for a while. I can't stand the texture of the fluffy robes I found everywhere I looked though. I found this great tutorial at Melly Sews a while ago. And I sort of held onto it for a while. After all, a robe isn't really a "need", much more of a "want". Around the same time, Iordered this quilt backing from Missouri Star Quilt Company to make myself a weighted blanket: But when it arrived, I realized that I had made a mistake.
