  1. Even though I don't spin I still like to hear you talk about the process & different things you've tried. It's educational to me!

  2. Wow, that's alot of wool to process!! I'm impressed. I can't wait to see how it spins up. I'd love to know how you got started spinning. I've been strictly spinning on a spindle for about 2-3 years now and I am considering a wheel. It's interesting hearing your perspective that wheels give you more control. I'm afraid I'll lose control going to a wheel!!
