Recently I picked up the drop spindle and I loved it so much that I knew I wanted to go to the next step but I didn’t want to spend the money. But I found some perfection!

After laying down $400, I was the proud new owner of a four year old, gently used Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel!! It was a great deal, because not only did I get the wheel, but also a Lazy Kate, 6 Bobbins, a Double Treadle Kit, and a niddy noddy. Its a basic start up kit!

It took a little bit, but I think I’ve figured it out! I am so excited for my new baby!!

On the bobbin is some unknown to me wool in red/brown/aqua tones. I got about a pound of roving with the wheel and its not really my colors, so I have a ton to practice on, so that’s what I’m doing.

It’s not perfect, but I’m trying.

What’s on your bobbin this week?
