Spinning my wheels

...or Mom is anyway...

Those that read her blog will know that she has a new obsession. Spinning.

While she's pretty much neglecting her knitting, it's working out well for me, because I have a new supply of handspun yarn!
I brought these three beauties home on the weekend

While I love the idea of spinning, and love the fairytale-looking wheels, I'm not ready to go down that rabbit hole yet.... so I'm going to live vicariously through Mom.... and steal her yarn whenever possible!

That yarn looks yummy! Maybe some of it should be making its way into the shop?

But it's such a fun and creative rabbit hole!

I so admire those who do their own spinning. I just can't go there either...I'll stick to the knitting. But that is some gorgeous yarn...I'd like to reach in and grab that pink!! Ha.

Oooh! I'm with you- can't afford another rabbit hole at this time. But the yarn is sooo pretty..!

Beautiful yarn! I don't really have a desire to learn to spin. I can barely find time to knit as it is. I'm glad you are getting to reap the benefits of Mom's other hobby!
