So, I was lucky enough to get a spot in a spinning class at Hank's Yarn. The shop is great, the ladies that own it are great, and Ginger's a great teacher. It's so much fun.
The Golding Spindle that Ginger was nice enough to let me use. It's amazing, and if I wasn't getting a wheel soon, I'd be investing in one.
It allowed me to make this.
Then, there's the wheel.
This week I'm using the Ashford Traditional. I picked it out because I love the look of the Saxony wheel.
Wheel spinning is easier to do than I expected. I've gotten started with this (the same roving as the spindle).
Which has become this
I also made a few purchases. Going into a yarn store on pay day can be dangerous. But fiber is a lot less expensive than yarn. I seem to have bought them in pairs.
