What a Beauty!

I bought a Matchless! After reading and reading everything I could about these wheels, I decided that it was exactly what I wanted - my dream wheel. It made its way across the ocean from Copper Moose in Vermont and arrived safely a few days before the school holidays finished lol I had a day or two playing with it before I was back at work and the kids were at school. It is a fantastic partner for the Traveller.

I haven't had much time to spin since she arrived, but I did put this on the wheel straight away and spun it as a 3ply.

It is ~8-9wpi and 187m. There is 19m of leftover chain ply at the same wpi. Fiber is BFL/Silk (75/25) from Corgi Hill Farm.

Well done, Liz. Kind of surprised you had to order it from the US. Hope you're having as much fun with it as time allows.

Can't wait to see what you spin on that. I don't know how you fit in any time at all to spin with everything else you do!!
