Taking a break from the spinning for a minute for a quick post. A few pics of yarn making- I'm working on the grey; next the black, then back to the needles.
looking great Albert...... i would like to know where did u get your wheel from......and fibers
I bought my wheel a couple of years ago online from the Fricke Company. I don't remember what I paid, but it was one of their less expensive wheels. It works quite well, it's just that it is not made from fine woods like the higher-end models. As for fiber, I also buy it online. There are many resources like Paradise Fiber, or R.H. Lindsey that carry every kind of animal, vegetable or synthetic fiber you could want. It's a lot of fun and actually less expensive in the long run than buying millspun yarn, not to mention the possibility of creating unique yarns from your own imagination.
omg...as fulfilling as knitting something and then wearing it is, I can only imagine how much moreso it would be to spin the yarn you knitted it with. Wow!
