I took along my spinning wheel and spent a lovely day spinning and chatting to lots of folk. Quite a few people spoke about their Grannies spinning or in some cases their Mum. The different designs of spinning wheel that are available was a point for discussion. The Orkney spinning wheel has a double drive, I would love to find one for sale. My wheel is an Ashford traveller. My wheel and Ali's Baskets are in the next snap.
I have been making some hats from felted jumpers - pictures to follow.
