From the Great Wheel ...

My first sample spun on the great wheel. I spun a grey single and a colored single then plied them together. I like it! No, I love it! The grey "mongrel" wool was purchased at the NH Sheep & Wool last year, and the colored (in the grease) wool is from the NY Sheep & Wool the year before last.

The cloth feels so beautifully woolen, and it exudes warmth and coziness--an almost incongruous thing to write in these warm temperatures we're having. (High today of 88; currently a beautiful 75.)

I see a project in the makings. Gonna get spinning!

I stumbled across this wonderful video last evening of "spinning from the fold" on a great wheel. Fantastic!
