Asleep at the Wheel

Well, at least we are getting some use out of it!
I haven't had time to spin recently. Although this morning at the farmers market I was working with J on learning a drop spindle. I can't seem to draft the wool and keep the spindle spinning in the right direction. I think it is easier on a wheel, where your feet can do that work... Unless someone is using the treadles as a pillow!

Have you tried learning to do the park and draft first with the spindle? That might be easier then jumping in headfirst.

Love the picture! She/he looks a lot like my Cookie did. :)
