Yay! At a garage sale my bf spotted me cash for this fabulous new spinning wheel (and accessories for carding the material before spinning.) Ok, so it's taking a lot of my patience and I am starting with a very hard material, cotton, so I shouldn't be so zealous to learn right away. Mostly it's getting the pedal down and the rhythm. We figured out how to assemble and fix the places that needed to be fixed. I can't wait until I am able to make beautiful yarns and possibly sell them too. Yes and also dye, etc.
