or… Spinning is hard starting with attaching the belt to the wheel!
The belt I ordered for my spinning wheel came yesterday. It’s basically a long clear elastic cord which you melt the tips of to press together to make a loop. You see where the house was in danger right? After I combed the kitchen looking for matches I called my mom (who lives next door remember) to ask for her lighter. Of course she wasn’t home. Then I remembered we had a box of matches in our old apartment that we bought with a grill at some point. Did the matches survive the move? I looked in a few more places and found them. It’s important that you know these are fireplace matches, meaning they are about 10 inches long and wooden. Again I’m sure you have a better understanding of the post title. I requested some assistance from the hubby. He struck a match and promptly dropped it on the kitchen floor… lit. Lucky for me he has fast reflexes so no real harm was done, well except for my nerves =). We managed to attach the first cord with relative ease, the second one not so much. That one resulted in a slightly burned hand (mine) tender fingertips (his) and melted plastic drips (the wheel). All three survived with superficial wounds and all limbs in tact =)
Oh and spinning. It.Is.Hard.
