I have a new toy!!!!


A dear friend found an excellent deal on an older Ashford Traditional wheel. So, now I have a spinning wheel! I have got some seriously overspun stuff on the bobbin right now, but I am loving it.



Just had to share with some people who would get my over joyed self at the moment!!!!

Something I've never tried my hand at is spinning, but I've always wanted to. Looks like a lovely piece of machinery too!

My latest toy is a yarn ball winder which I was able to get at a bargain too. Nothing like getting a new tool at a good price!

Congratulations on your new toy!
