Ok here comes an enable post.. BE WARNED!
I live in London, in a TINY weeny little flat with a cat and what would likely be called a small stash by some, my mother however would likely refer to it as a mountain of yarn.
Anyway, I won't have much room at all to play with, and yes I was concerned about adding roving / fiber to my already expensive habit but I have good reason
Anyway for the space challenged, I give you The Ashford Joy wheel:
its small enough that it fits into its nice blue canvas shoulder bag (which will store nicely in the bottom of a wardrobe, or the top.. or the shoe rack (if I didn't have a bad shoe habit also) or errr.... I'm sure a home could be found
Now my reasons for learning to spin are many - not least of which because its an "I wanna do that!" type thing but also because I can get my hands easily on some bamboo fiber for spinning, but getting hands on bamboo yarn in the UK is not straightforward :P
Also I want to be able to spin some yarn, knit with it and say "tada lookie what I did!"
If after trying the spinning at the lesson (its a one on one with a lady who has been spinning since 1971) I think "I am NEVER ever going to have the hand eye and feet co-ordination for this" then I'll not come home with a wheel. I know the lady is keen on the Ashford Traditional wheel (that is what I'll be learning on) but I am afraid I couldn't have one of those it just seems too big!
