Spinning….

Well I had my spinning lesson last Friday…
I had been really nice to Hubby for 2 weeks hinting that I needed a better wheel and my teacher had one for sale that I could have for Christmas. Finally he said yes and she brought it with her. I now have an Ashford Traditional (for £50!!!) my Christmas gift.
It is fantastic, I love it. It spins like a dream.

This is my first wheelspun.
49.5yrds of 9wpi which is about a worsted weight.

This is my second…
85.5yrds of 11wpi which is about a DK weight.

Here is my third.
151.5yrds of 12wpi which is about a DK weight.

I am spinning at the moment some more of the bottom roving and it is spinning much thinner this time so I am hoping for sport weight and enought o do myself a pair of socks.

    I’m so jealous you got a wheel for £50!!! The yarn is really lovely. It’s great fun watching your progress. Roughly how long did it take you to spin each of the skeins ? – just wondering for comparison to the spindle spun yarn.
