Well what do you know!!

I'm buying a spinning wheel!!

If you've found your way here via a link and are looking to donate to my wheel fund, thank you! But I've stopped accepting donations because I've met my goal and I have a heck of a lot of spinning to do. If I hear of someone else who's using this idea and starting their own wheel fund, which I think would be fabulous, I'll post a link here.

Thank you again and again to all of the donors who've made my purchase possible. I'll be posting progress updates here, so you can have a general idea of when to expect your yarn. So check back soon! I'll be linking to yarn photos, but I won't post the photos themselves here in case you want to be surprised! :)

In case you're curious, I've ordered a Fricke S-160 DT spinning wheel. It's a good versatile starter wheel whose owners speak very highly of it. I'm so excited, and of course I want it NOW! But in the meantime...back to the spindle I go.... :)

That was quick! And you are making some beautiful yarn. All I want is a wooden drop spindle myself and I'm hoping Mr. Claus will hand one over.
