Spinning Wheel!

Over the weekend, I finally found time to put together my spinning wheel. I love it! All the kids have taken turns treadling.

It's a Fricke S-160-DT.





And a box of fiber, waiting to be spun!


I haven't yet gotten fiber and wheel together, but I have read my book and just need to find a little time to focus and try it out. I'm so excited!

(Sorry for the blurry pictures!)

Oh, lovely! I assume they're blurry because it's like a dream come true -- the dream of fluffy fiber. I was planning to spin some more today. I'll think of you while I do.

That looks like a contraption I'd break in a minute! How the heck do you spin fiber on it? I'll have to look this new hobby of yours up to see what it's all about. ;-) Have fun!!
