Firstly, its official! J’adore my new/old spinning wheel.
Spinning wheels are something that I have always associated with fairy tales (sleeping beauty, rumplestiltskin), so they have a certain sense of fantasy and mystery surrounding them. Its certainly not something that I would have considered doing a few months ago.
But now that I have started, I am enjoying it so much. It is so relaxing…sitting, listening the chorus of the songbirds when i spin in the early morning…watching the colours of the fibres running through your fingers, spreading onto the spool.
This is what I have done so far.
Its not alot, but I’m really pleased with them. Now I just need to finish off a bit more so I can start plying.
I’ve tried the najavo plying method, which wasn’t too hard and I really like how it keeps the colours together. I’ll post some pictures of that soon too.
Until the next time… adieu
