I love my new spinning wheel!!

Yesterday was the first day that I was able to spin on my OWN wheel. I didactually spin on the kiwi about 2 weeks ago and I loved it BUT nothing beats spinning on my very own wheel. My wheel still hasn't made it to my own home yet but since I am visiting with my mother, I thought that I might as well break her in while I have an experienced spinner on hand to help me get the feel of the wheel. Here take a look at my beautiful spinning wheel, Blessing. Isn't she gorgeous??



Here are my meager beginnings too. Yes lots of overtwisting but hey I have only been spinning on my wheel for what 2 days now. LOL I will get the hang of it. I will have to say that I have made some progress though. I am actually able to treadle and draft at the SAME time. LOL Huge accomplishment for me. No it's not super fast treadling yet but my wheel is moving. :o)
