The Joy of Spinning…

So, I got a spinning wheel, from Avery, for Yule.  I can’t even begin to explain how happy that makes me.  She’s an Ashford Traveller….as yet unfinished Silver Beech…  I haven’t stopped spinning long enough to stain her yet.  Yes, it’s a she, her name is Charlotte….after the grand web spinning spider.  I don’t want to post a picture of her until she’s all done, but I have a pic of the model to share….as well as a pic of my very first, usable, handspun yarn!!!

    That’s awesome! I’ve always wanted to learn how to spin but that might have to be saved for much further in the future… too many things going on now as it is!

  2. Thanks, ladies… I did make my Mom a neckwarmer out of a bit of it… I might make one for myself out of a bit more, but I do want to keep at least some of it just as it is. I am having a blast with the whole spinning thing. It’s taking up much of my time and attention right now. I just wish I could stop spinning long enough to stain the poor girl…she’s still naked! lol
