I guess I got a little ahead of myself in my last post about helping me learn how to spin. I realize I never posted about actually getting a spinning wheel!
I am happy to announce that I am the proud new owner of an Ashford Kiwi which I have affectionately named Gideon. In the Bible story, Gideon attempts to test God with a bit of Fleece. You can find the whole story here, The Story Of Gideon ; of course, I always suggest a person read the Bible.
Simple. by my friend Alicia Plummer.
I have to point out there, that it's the type of handspun wool in this hat, which was spun my my dear friend Jennifer, and the handspun made by Alicia that had me inspired to learn to spin myself. My ultimate goal is to be able to hand dye my own roving, then spin it into my own squishy wonderfulness!
I wanted to post these pictures for other newbie spinners who might run into troubles. Just keep practicing!
