Hello... How are all my bloggy friends today? I hope you are all well and continuing to be happily creative.
Do you know what this gorgeous thing pictured above is? My very first skein of yarn hand spun by me! Who new that something so simple could make me so completely happy. ♥
The most amazing thing... This hand spun yumminess was created with this one simple tool. A drop spindle. How totally cool is that!
And then to add to this spinning awesomeness my Tangled Happy Hubby surprised me with this beautiful antique flax wheel for my birthday. Isn't she gorgeous! We seem to be having a bit of a bipolar relationship. One minute this wheel is making me so so happy. And then has me completely frustrated. It took a few days to figure out all her pieces and how they work. But finally she seemed to be moving along quite nicely.
And then... Something broke.
So now I will wait patiently while she is being fixed...
Are any of you already spinning? Would you be interested in learning how? I am certainly not an expert but I would be happy to share with you what I've learned so far.
Wishing you all a happy week!
