photoblog 4 - spinning whirling twirling

i just wanted to show off my 'new' tool

new to me spinning wheel :) needs just a little love and it'll be spinning wonderfully!

mother of all and tension adjustment

the 'working end'. orifice and maiden

bobbin, flyer etc (before i took the mucky old yarn off it!) also, temporary cotton tensioner.

Now, with any luck, i'll be able to spin the lovely super-fine alpaca yarn i'm wanting to make (and then make soft wonderful stuff like shawls with)

  1. oh that is so cool! I so want to get to this myself. Patience isn't one of my virtues tho and I have so many unfinished projects. I can hardly wait to see what it will do!
