After a couple of hours of struggle, a yarn store visit, a stop at my old workplace, and a long ride home, I have a complete spinning wheel once again. Now with awesome woodburning and semi-awesome stain job!
Yes, you’re seeing that right- Nicole altered the original kiwi on the treadle to closer resemble my wheel’s namesake, Peter the kiwi bird.
The wheel itself is also Peter-bedecked, this time tieless and dancing.
I’m also in the process of constructing a custom tensioned lazy kate, so I asked Nicole to woodburn that for me too. Here’s what she came up with.
So amazing. I don’t know how she does it. I owe her big time.
(Before you all ask, I mostly got yarn for Christmas presents at the yarn store, so I can’t show off… but I got this for me:
Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in “Rosewood”. So gorgeous. It looks just like raspberry chocolate.)
