It's been awhile since I've done any spinning, but it's like riding a bike....it comes back quickly. And of course, I'm spinning purple dyed wool. I can knit and spin wool, but it is hard for me to wear it! I like to spin outdoors on the porch, because the veg-matter always makes a mess indoors (sticks, burrs). The yard kitties were very curious about my spinning, they are still young and haven't seen me spin until yesterday. Maybe you could call me the "barefoot" spinner. My wheel is an Ashford Traveller. I used to have five wheels, but have narrowed it down to just this one, plus a few spindles. I think I do too many hobbies!
