This is the "Ashford Traveller Wheel" and she is so "sweet". I have always wanted to learn how to spin my own yarn, ever since I went to my first "Renaissance Fair" and watched the ladies spinning.
Learning how to spin yarn was on my bucket list, now I can cross it off. Well at least I have the spinning wheel now, I still need to learn "how".
I searched for classes on the net in my home town and low and behold I found one. I am so very excited to start a class and finally learn to spin.
The Ashford Traveller Wheel weighs only 15 pounds so she is easy to carry and transport. I found her for sale at work of all places, a gal at work was moving and she no longer had room for the Ashford, since she had purchased a new wheel. I bought her for only $80.00, new these wheels can run over $400.00.
I even have some practice wool.
And books to read!. I can't wait to get started. Do you spin and if so can you give me any helpful hints? (Oh my, I just noticed that when I snapped this photo the bottom of my pjs were in the way , oh silly me!) Do you take your photos in your pjs too?
