The wife has decided she needs to try her hand at spinning. Shes mentioned it a few times.
So, off I go to the local auction and try to get a few sheep, alpaca, whatever's there for her to get her raw material from.
Nothing there, nada, zip, zilch.
Then I hit the local antiques store with the hope of finding a spinning wheel for here. Nope , nuthin'.
Not a very good start. I might have to order her one online. I just wanted to surprise her with all the gear so she could just have at it.
I have been knitting mittens like a mad man lately. They keep getting better and better. I am sticking to one simple but lovely pattern. Ive made 4 pairs. Nothing like practice to perfect your knitting.
