It looks like yarn!

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I got bored and pulled out an old spindle.  I found spindling to be relaxing and a break from knitting and weaving.  Fast forward to our anniversary on December 23rd.  Reed surprised me with the Ashford Kiwi 2. He stained the big wheel, hand stamped the dogwood blossoms and waxed the entire wheel. Of course it's name is blossom.

First spinning efforts:

Reed came home from work today, looked at the wheel and said "it looks like yarn."
Makes me oh so happy!
