I couldn't Wait !!


I have been giving my new Electric Spinning Wheel a whirl !....


As I couldn't wait.....to have a try !...

Some people, have mentioned that it looks like an item of extreme torture !!!!.....Rob. I am hoping that this actually makes my life much easier...more pleasurable...not torturous !

When it arrived there were a couple of wires that had came disconnected, during transit I think.....so after a little bit of communication with the seller in Russia...via the email....I managed to locate where these had came from.

I have repaired the wires by soldering them into place.... and the little wheel works perfectly...

This electric spinning wheel has a nice history to it...it was handcrafted by a gentleman for his lovely wife...to spin in Russia... I know its not exactly new...but I like it and it makes the job much easier...for any body who spins...knows all about the process.

It is unique... and anybody who knows me...will know I don't do conventional....very well !!

So, I've had my first trial run....and hey-presto....its great !

I am looking forward to spending..many happy hours spinning up my alpaca fleece...

I'll let you know how we get on !!
