the wool spinner
to write the scene i needed to not only know the mechanics of how to spin wool to yarn, but the sounds, the smells, the textures. what better way than to buy my own wheel and learn how to spin myself.
so, here's to learning something new!
i envision myself on summer evenings, pulling my wheel onto our back patio and spinning in a long sun dress, bare feet, with a glass of ice tea resting at my toes.
i'll post a photo of my new prized possession once i have it...tonight.
and it didn't come easy acquiring it! who knew used spinning wheels were so widely sought after? not i. nevertheless, the perfect wheel has fallen into my lap.
