Why? Because my parents have generously donated me some money to buy my own spinning wheel!! What kind did I get? Well... I will let you know on Thursday when it arrives! I am not the type to giggle but I did, many many times when I got off the phone from the lovely lady at Handspinner.co.uk (Shiela Dixon). If you visit her site you will know I got some kind of Ashford, but that is all I am saying!
Ok so why is the post labelled as a WIP and Done: Autumn Dreams? Because, I have spun a lot of the October colorway from Rogue Adventures. I was trolling the internet, well youtube, looking up my new spinning wheel and there is a video on how to use a ball winder with your spinning wheel. Then using the center pull ball to ply on the spinning wheel. Well, wanted to give the technique a try I plied some of my spun yarn using this technique with my spindolyn. I did not do all of it, nor have spun all the roving.
That is the WIP:
|This is the single I spun on the spindolyn! It will be plied on the wheel!|
Now for the Done:
|Nice reddish hue with yellow and brown accents!|
Up close pictures of parts of the yarn.
|My little skein. If it looks this good on from the Spindolyn who knows|
how great it will look from the wheel!! Can't wait!
Length: I am getting in a niddy noddy as well so I will be able to tell you
sometime next week.
