My 2015 New Year resolutions are more hand embroidery, more knitting, more crochet and definitely more hand spinning! Just more crafting in general! Last year I started to learn to spin on an antique Victorian ash spinning wheel and though it was in good working order it was hard to get the correct tension and so my lovely husband decided to buy me a new one for Christmas!
Here I am spinning my first yarn on my new Ashford Kiwi 2 spinning wheel. I have just spun some grey and white Jacobs and then plied them together to make a cool humbug yarn (see bottom image). I am going to use this to make my husband a pair of thick slouch socks. It’s only fair he has the first fruits of my labour lol.
