New love ....Majacraft Suzie Professional

Yes, I got myself a Majacraft Suzie Professional wheel last Friday. I ordered my wheel from Ewegivemetheknits.com on 2nd May 2009. That's long time ago? You are right, that is how long I have to wait to get my wheel. I was waiting and waiting everyday for the postman...I think my neck grew longer too! :P
Here it is :

Suzie Pro

She is a beauty!
I also bought an Ashford Competition lazy kate for plying :

These are the slivers that I got from EGMTK too! :

Merino/Silk Sliver Saffron
Moroccan Nights Merino Top
Mulled Wine Merino Top
Seraphin Merino Top

It is such a joy to spin with Suzie Pro. It spins quietly and smoothly. This is my first handspun with Suzie Pro :
2 ply Cotton Candy

It is my hand dyed Cotton Candy that I plied 2 ply. The yarn is 107 gms BFL measuring 223 metres fingering weight. The second handspun is my hand dyed Forest. I tried Navajo plying with this Merino roving and I got 253 metres from 140 gms. I love the yarn spun using this method because it is so round and strong.

Last but not least...I want to thank my dear friends Elaine, Aw and Mei for helping me to make this tough but worthy decision to buy my wheel. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)
