oooo goodie

May 24, 2007

here is my newest toy. Its an Ashford Traveller from the 70’s that I got off eBay for $130. It is missing a drive band and break band but I have improvised with some shop twine and it seems to be doing the job for now. Talk about a nice Mummies Day present.

this is the first yarn I have spun with it, its a 2 ply using the light blue roving from the previous post.

And I have joined my first a-long. We have to spin our own yarn to make a shawl.

    Nice wheel!
    Shop twine should work fine for your drive band and break band – the real thing is made from something very similar looking!
    Your yarn looks great 🙂
