Albert and the antique spinning wheel. Albert turned one just after Christmas. He’s full of personality and quite a ham. I purchased the antique spinning wheel years ago after I just started spinning. It sat until just recently as and ornament and not functional with the leathers on the treadle broken off. Krysten repaired her  and got her running about a month ago.  She’s quite fun to spin on and I was very surprised! Krysten thinks she may have come from germany originally.  I purchased her on Cape Cod.

With the new year I’ve decided to give blogging a try.   Sarah’s been instagraming everyday  since the beginning of the so maybe this will become and extension of that. Today she posted a photo of some of the self striping hand spun that we have available for sale and headband that Sarah knit on the 910 from the self striping handspun and some white handspun.   We’ve been playing around with patterns and different yarns.  It’s amazing how different the same pattern can look when it’s knitted in different kinds of yarn.
