Last week marked the fifteenth anniversary for Mind's Eye Yarns, one of the local shops I just love. People who made purchases during the sale were entered into a drawing for an Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel.
I don't know how to spin.
I don't care.
I had my first lesson this week.
I totally suck at spinning, but I really liked it. I need to practice, and get another lesson or two (or many more) because it's really cool to see yarn from fluffy stuff.
Here's the wheel. I might name it Lucita (that's in Andalucian, so it's pronounced "Luthita").
Right now it's sitting in my room, just begging me to give it a whirl.
