I'm so excited, yesterday hubby set up my new spinning wheel!
Back in June I took a weekend long beginners class (you can see it here and here) but without having my own wheel I didn't have the opportunity to spin again until now.
Looking at it all set up I was afraid I'd forgotten everything I had learned.
Turns out spinning is like riding a bike. After a few minutes of adjustment everything was coming back to me and I was able to spin the first yarn on my new wheel!
I started with the plain wool that came in the box but I have some wool that I dyed during a class back in July. I never did anything with it (secretly I think I was saving it in hopes of being able to spin it on my own wheel someday).
More to come!
(Oh and Happy Groundhog Day! I'm hoping for Spring, how about you?)
