Learning the ways of wool

Oh the wonders of learning to spin. Here's me playing with a drop spindle which Susan was good enough to loan me so I could perhaps spin some of my rovings I dyed. Now to get some time to master the technique. This was all part of the demos we were conducting during Arts & Culture Week in Canada. This is a busy weekend for me as I am doing two demos both Saturday and Sunday.
Here's Munchkin trying the spinning wheel. I would have to take time and get her to focus on consistency of speed, otherwise she seemed to be picking it up quite well. Just what I need more incentive to desire a spinning wheel. Cause I have plenty of time to master a new handcraft. ;0)

  3. The polka dot ensemble was a thrift store find, though I did have to add a little bling to please munchkin.
