Change Of Pace

I enjoyed knitting with beads, but it's good to turn to the more relaxed occupation of spinning wool - no peering at charts or checking bead sequences. Ideally, I'd have liked to do the two projects simultaneously, knit during the day and spin in the evening. But wool fibres have a nasty habit of finding their way into everything, and I couldn't risk having a fuzzy beaded bag. So I finished the knitting and put it away carefully before getting my spinningwheel out. It's so long since I did any spinning that it was covered with cobwebs, like something from a fairytale!


  1. :-D
    My sewing machine and knitting needles/wool are probably 'in' the spider's web too ;-p

  2. Now that's one thing I just could not get on with. I bought a spinning wheel and did give it a good go but in the end I gave up. lol

  3. You amaze me with all your many talents!! Sure would love to live near you and see your spinning in person. Thanks for showing pictures!! :)
