What I couldn't understand when I started out spinning is why anyone would want more than one wheel. Now after having done this for a while I understand that spinning wool and using wheels can be just as addictive as any other fibre activity. Learning how to spin has deeply immersed me into the fibre world. What started out as a hobby has turned into an online business that I love and really enjoy. My new wheel is an Ashford Traveller which I ordered from Joanne Block of Homespun Angoras. A great lady who makes up some beautiful handspun angora yarns. Be sure and check out her shop if you get the chance.
The wheel came to me looking like this:
It was all in pieces and unstained, so I stained it a beautiful colour called Bombay Mahogany. Here she is all stained and put together!
Now time for me to get back to my spinning!!
