I Bought the Wheel

I did end up buying the Ashford Country Spinner spinning wheel I was thinking about purchasing. I used it to ply some yarn the other day and it draws the yarn is so easily that it was great to ply with. One of the reasons I got the wheel was I want to start spinning art yarns for myself and my etsy shop. I ordered a copy of Plucky Fluff's book Handspun Revolution from her website to get some ideas of fun art yarns to spin. It's out of print but she still has copies at regular price instead of the out of print price you find them for on Amazon. She has another book out called Intertwined that I might purchase if I like Handspun Revolution. Pictures of the end results will be posted eventually.
