My fabulous birthday present from my darling husband & parents was an Ashford Joy! I’m still getting used to this wheel and I won’t deny that there have been moments of frustration, but I absolutely love this wheel! The frustration comes from the weighted flywheel which wants to stop in a particular position when you stop treadling. I’m getting used to it – it’s like learning to spin again in a small way.
There has also been progress on the knitting front! I have finished a pair of fingerless mitts and am on my way to completing my Wingspan Shawl. Photos to come very soon.
Wow, I’ve made two posts in less than a month – wonders will never cease!
