Miwi

Meet Miwi, this is my spinning wheel. It is an Ashford Kiwi. I got it while at the Maryland sheep and wool festival. I learned to spin on a drop spindle and decided I wanted a spinning wheel. I read about the Ashford kiwi online and it sounded like a good wheel for a beginner and it also was not very expensive. I haven’t ever used any other spinning wheel so I can’t compare it to other wheels. So far I have been very pleased with it. I have not been able to master spinning a thicker yarn, yet. Everything I spin seems to be on the thin side. I think this is the lack of knowledge on the spinners part.

Dax’s soccer team is still on a roll. Florida today was at the field for their last game and took some pictures. If interested, you can see them in the soccer gallery here. Click thru the “next” button to see all the pictures.

I finished Dax’s skorts. She wore them to school today. We will be starting on Halloween costumes soon.

This is how far I got on her sweater.
