I went out to Wool Gathering today with Betsy. We got there shortly after it opened and began making our first lap around the vendor booths. I got to say hello to some of my old chums from the Dayton Knitting Guild and to Susan from Ball and Skein. Then I wandered over to Fiberworks where Arlene happened to have spinning wheels for sale. Shockingly enough she had 3 Lendrum DT wheels. After a quick call to the boy I was writing her a check and grabbing my new toy. Witness:
Once I got home I put it together and began working on some of the fiber scraps I had around. Now I am trying to figure out what to do with the 4 bobbins I have. I could ply them together on themselves or try to combine the colors into a 2 color yarn. Thoughts anyone?
The best part is after I finished up this roving the boy hopped in my seat to take the wheel for a test drive. He’s having all kinds of fun playing with it and figuring out how it works. 🙂
