My woodworking friend did a marvelous job, and he asked me some questions about how the whole thing worked. Of course, I was more than happy to give a demonstration!
She spins like a dream! I have decided to name her Lizzie, after the woman who used her more than a century ago. I have to name her because I now have another Great Wheel, that I am putting together from random Ebay auctions. (Those pieces are in Alans workshop for some repairs.) I posted about that wheel on my Farmsteadstudio blog.
On the weaving front, I plan to empty 2 looms by next Wednesday. I am not far from that happening, really, maybe 1 baby blanket on one loom and maybe 2 or 3 napkins on the other.
I need to put on a custom order for 10 bread cloths with a Leno lace insert, of course, I will put on enough for at least 20 and do a Swedish lace insert on the others. I love a loom controlled lace! Much easier on my hands! Never a dull moment around here!
Until next time, Happy Weaving and Spinning, Tina
