My day started out like this. My sweet husband cleaned it off for me and I headed down the road.
About an hour or so later I reached my destination there in that stand of trees.
Down the drive.
Back around to the shop (not in pic)
|The Superbly Cute Spinning Wheel from Schacht Spindle Company|
We spun up a little Cormo.
I can't remember the name of the gadget below other than it was a type of winder. Pretty handy to wind the spun wool onto til time to ply.
Here it is winding up some spun wool.
The wool going from the wheel ( I can't exactly remember what that piece is called-a bobbin?) to the winder.
When I went to my first fiber festival and even my second one, I wondered what would one do with these braided things. Now I know. You spin them into wool.
Plying from the bobbins.
These are camelids of some sort....llamas? Seem too big for alpacas. What do you think?
The roads were not as friendly on the way home.
All-wheel drive is a good thing.
This is my little hank of yarn that I spun up today. For my third attempt, it isn't too bad.
I love it.
