Spinning: Speaking of twist...

If it weren't for Ms. Cheryl Oberle, my spinning wheel would get about as much use as the juicer. As it is, the group of spinners she gathers monthly are so talented and informative that it behooves a lazy spinner to shoulder the Big Wood and head out the door.

For example, did you know you could purchase modular spindles with screw-on shafts, so you can keep spinning without unloading your spindle? Or that a drum carder has a feature called a licker-on? Heavens!

More startling is that the Big Wood has produced a second ball of plied yarn this year. From Fleece Artist Silk Wool Sliver (65% wool/35% silk).

Thank you, Ladies. You are an inspiration!
