Today was another day with the spinning wheel. Today saw more spinning and less "figuring". I ended up pulling the first attempt at wheel spinning off of the bobbin and starting all over again. Something about seeing that lumpy, bumpy, twisty mess just irked me a little too much to leave it be. I've placed an order for a book on spinning, "Spinning for Softness and Speed" by Paula Simmons. It has been recommended to me twice now, and soon it will be part of my library. In the meantime, I have a book on tablet weaving to read.
As I promised yesterday, here is a picture of my wheel.
And here is a picture of my beginner spinning efforts from today.
It looks very similar to my first attempts with a drop spindle. Over time, it will get more even. For now, it's not too pretty.
Tomorrow, I've got some cooking to do. Frugality rules, and a simple chicken can easily be stretched over three meals. I will post recipes and pictures.
