Spinning wheel for me




I finally finished my ashford kiwi and put it together. Last night I tried spinning on it so now I have some over spun yarn. I got picture of the yarn on the bobbin so you can see my maroon yarn I spun the other night. The twist has relaxed some.

Your Kiwi is sooo cute, will you be naming it? My Kromshi Sonata is Named Maurice :-)
You'll have to come over for spinning and tea some afternoon!

Nic spinning wheel Helaine, cute pic of a Kiwi on it too ;9 You should give it a Maori name like Hinemoa, a Maori princess whose story is one of the many legends in New Zealand

I have no idea how I would say that her name but it would be cool to name my wheel some thing. Basically I was just thinking of calling it Kiwi. I want to finish the kiwi on the tredle maybe a gold leaf.

Hugs, Helaine

Hey, Helaine! Your wheel came out great! Patience paid off! And your spinning looks really good! My first time on the wheel was SO slubby! I still have it stashed around here some where.

Invites open for you to come spin here with me sometime, too! I've also got a new loom coming! Yippee!
