I spent the next day trying to get the hang of it. It didn't actually take that long, once I watched a couple of YouTube videos. But, I dragged it out for one complete day so everyone would let me spin. I'm hooked!
Of course, I had to name her. So I christened this spinning wheel Aretha. She is plain and simple, but a dream to me...all she wants is a little respect.
I will probably never touch a drop spindle again. A wheel is just so much faster to do the same thing. I quickly spun up some fibers that I had laying around since November. Can't wait to ply what I've spun and actually finish my first yarn.
