Spinning



Several people asked what kind of wheel I bought. It's the Schacht double treadle model and I got it from Bountiful. The singles I showed you yesterday have now been plied and I'm fairly happy with the yarn:



I spun up a little more of the same roving; but this time a little thinner without so much twist. I might like this one a little better.



The roving is from a local fiber artist, Lynn Snell, who operates a wonderful business here in Salt Lake called Spinderella's Creations. It's gorgeous, unique, and carded in a way that makes it incredibly easy to spin. But don't even think about buying all she has left unless you intend to send some of it to me!!
