Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, and the very best New Year.  May 2017 be a great year for everyone.  I have taken out my spinning wheels and fine tuned them, oiled and waxed them. I have also bought 2 oz of many different sheep wool to try and find which I like better.  I want to spin some natural colored wool for socks.  I would also love to buy a new spinning wheel but they are so expensive.  I have had 2 of them over twenty years and the other one probably about 12 years.  I need lots of practice because it has been a long time since I have spun wool.  I also purchased some silk and tencel to add to my wool to make the socks hold up with wear and not stretch out.  Have great family time during the holidays.
