My wonderful husband bought me a spinning wheel for Christmas. Well, I bought it (because I went to Shuttleworks to try out a few) but he suggested it. I tried a few and decided on the Ladybug by Schacht. I really like it, and am having some success with it. I've tentatively named her Aurora, but that is subject to change on a whim.
This is the only photo that has much of the wheel in view - these are the first singles spun on the wheel. The fiber is Northern Lights Wool Top by Louet - another Christmas gift.
Which ended up becoming this
Since then, I've spun the following:
Fiber Optic Yarns 80 BFL 20 Tussah Silk (a batt)
Fiber Optic Yarns Superwash Merino and Tencel Roving
Mystery brand Merino and Tencel
and finally, Fiber Optic Yarns Footnotes Unspun (a pencil roving)
The Footnotes yarn has already been made into a Lacy Baktus
So you see, in the past 3.5 months I've added a craft (crochet) and greatly expanded a craft (spinning).
