What a lovely wheel. Ashford single drive, right? I have an Ashford and a Matchless. Spinning is such a pleasure.

I visited a lovely old victorian home that has been turned into a fiber cooperative today. The owner of the home was a young woman in her 20s who keeps a flock of 50 cheviots, spins, felts, and knits. We were chatting about knitting projects when I told her about your blog and flock.

Spinning is definitely in my future, but for now I've got to plan what to do with the awesome alpaca, fresian, and merino/jacob fibers I got!

Dreamy! My fiber rabbits should be here next Sunday. I'm saving up for a wheel but would like to score a vintage one from somewhere. Ah, a girl can only dream......

Me too, it's hypnotic! On my way home, I stopped at my friend Sue's house, and was telling her all about the day, and she said her mom has a spinning wheel in her attic that she might part with!!!!

I had a great time, great workshop!

So happy there are people who spin. I have no desire to spin or to weave, but I love yarn. The process fascinates me,but I just have no interest. I'd be lost without spinner.

About 10 years ago I fell in love with spinning. Luckily for me, my father had recently retired and took up his love of woodwork full time. He built me a traditional saxony wheel. It clacks gently as I spin. It's hypnotic. lol I spin the fur from my angora rabbit, Annie and our husky Echo!

I have an Ashford wheel too. There is something so relaxing about spinning and it is so rewarding.
