Merlin Tree Road Bug spinning wheel

A while ago I purchased my first spinning wheel with the money I got for Christmas. It is a small wheel, small enough to fit inside a carry on luggage bag! It is very easy to use and after a few days I finally was getting the hang of things. I still have a long ways to go to get to a nice and even yarn, but I’m not doing bad so far.

This shows the first two skens that I did.  The top skein is the first one I did and the bottom is the second. You can see how much better I’m doing already!

All the other ones shown are two ply. This one is thick and thin singles that I did to weave with.

I made a monster for my nephews birthday. He loved it.

I have lots more fiber to eventually spin up, but first I am working on using up all the acrylic I have. Projects with that to come next.
