As for the spinning wheel, it runs like a dream. It's gorgeous. I purchased it from guinnessfan-tastic on ebay, and they worked well with me when confusions arose (all on my part).
As for the spinning wheel itself, it runs like a dream. I love the whirring sound, and the extra bobbins they sent me were a plus. Really really nice.
So I've been spinning up some yarn, and my best attempts I'm putting up for sale on etsy. (just so I can recoup some of the costs of roving and the spinning wheel itself- check out my store on the left!) I must say myself, I have a pretty smooth draw from my drop spindle, and as a result I think it carries over very well to using a spinning wheel.
I'm thinking about a contest in the next few weeks. What do you think? I'm thinking about offering up some handspun, as well as another treat, perhaps.
Any ideas for another small gift to go along with the handspun in a contest? I'd love some suggestions! Leave them in the comments.
