I bought a spinning wheel!

Pic-free post because I didn’t think to take pictures today, but…

I drove down to Frankfort, KY to The Woolery take an intro to spinning class and pick a wheel.  I was surprised that the wheel I fell in love with was the Lendrum, because the thing looks too mod and silly to me.  But of the five or six wheels I treadled on, it was very clearly my favorite.

The class was great.  Since I already know how to spin on a spindle, the first hour of class wasn’t entirely necessary but it was good to spin with an experienced spindler right there to help me with the nagging issues I’ve been having. The instructor Nancy was incredibly helpful, and I’ll be going back for her intermediate spinning class at some point.

They didn’t have the Lendrum wheel in stock (which was probably a good thing – I had other things to do today when I got home!) but I should get one in my grubby little hands in a couple weeks.

So Excited!
