It must be nearly 2 years ago that I bought my little Spin Well spinning wheel. I spun up some wool fairly quickly but got hung up on the plying. I couldn’t figure out how to get my wheel to take up the wool onto the bobbin once it was plied. Basically, I had to ply a strip of it and stop the wheel and turn the bobbin by hand. I got hung up by the frustration. (I tried looking on line. Every video and blog spoke about different makes and models of wheels that had parts and doodads that my wheel does not. I can’t find any reference to parts that my wheel is missing.) Anyway, if you are interested, here is a link to the posts about the wheel and my drama trying to get it to work.
Anyway, I finally knuckled down and finished that ball of wool. It is thick and lumpy (which makes it very fashionable, by the way) but I am proud of it.
It knit up quickly.
I was hoping for a scarf but realistically, I knew it wasn’t very likely. So I went with neck or ear warmer.
Wow! Those photos really showcase the wrinkles and turkey waddle! I probably need to start adding filters to my photographs!
