Going for a Second Spin
Jared and I went for our second spinning lesson.
This time he worked on a spinning wheel instead of a spindle. The one he tried was the Schacht Sidekick which was just his size. Our teacher, Donna, said she has never seen a kid his age handle fiber as well as he does. He's going to be better than me!
The one I worked on was the Ashford Traveller. I really liked the height because it was more comfortable to sit at. Next time I am going to try the Schacht Ladybug. I think it might be the perfect one for me having the motion of the Schacht Joy that I first used and the height of the Ashford Traveller. We'll see.
This time we brought some of Smiley's washed black fleece. It came a lot easier for both of us but we still have much to learn. I can't tell you how rewarding it was to see it take shape as yarn and know if came from our sheep.
