A Holiday Project- December 2012


So to kick off the New Year, I have decided to do a 12 post review highlighting each month of 2012. And since this project is still fresh, I will start with December!

My Fav and I spent a lazy Christmas morning constructing a spinning wheel for my Sis. This one here came a couple days later and is mine, and thanks to some help of some really awesome people, is actually working!

I have yet to completely decide what color to make it, or whether it would like to be stained, or distressed or want a color wash… I do know that for now, it feels good to have it operational.

I may post some images of my yarns and threads that I have already spun on my drop spindles (and thanks for my new one Jenkins Family! You rock!) at a later date. But if you look closely, you can see some of the recycled silk I am spinning, also a gift from The Jenkins!



  1. Hey i found a youtube video where this woman spun newspaper.. Have u tried that yet? if Rumplestilskin can spin gold from hay... u can try to spin silver from newspaper. rotflmbo.

  2. LOL... I have seen amazing things done with paper, but have yet to try any. Rumplestilskin I am not though I think we are of similar height. Well I'm probably taller lol.
