My first wheel-spun, wheel-plied yarn:
And then, after three lessons, I had to buy a wheel. I chose an Ashford Kiwi 2. I also chose to assemble it myself, thinking we would get to know each other better that way.
In the process, I did learn a thing or two about the Kiwi. But really, the main thing was to start spinning.
I already had accumulated a fair amount of roving. The original intent was to spin it using a spindle. And I did that, for a while. But after spinning, spindling feels like something that requires three hands.
The spindles will now be relegated to decor - I'm hooked on spinning!
