So I bought it. I also got alot of cotton, hemp, and some wool for blending. By the time we got out of there, my budget was done and I was fibered out for the time being. But we had some time to kill before I had to go to the airport to pick up the boy.
So we ate at a great Chinese place, and decided to stop by a Tim Horton's to kill some time. But there was no way we were just going to sit there and not play with the wheel! So we took in the small bag of wool, and the wheel.
Look! Is it a book, or a spinning wheel? I certainly see donughts in the picture, though.
This is me trying to get my groove back from when I used to spin. Yeah, it still might take some time.
Andi lookin' at me taking her picture, and her playing with the wheel. She has some major Charkha envy now.
Of course, the first thing this I did this morning is get the wheel out. This is a closer pic of it.
This is the wheel laid out. Its about 18-20 inches long. And that's Socrates checking out the fiber next to the table.
