I said I wanted a ladybug, and my husband ordered it and surprised me with it. I didn’t know he ordered it until it showed up!

I have never did any spinning, and I used to think I never wanted to learn to spin. I don’t know what happened… like I need another hobby!

Here it is being unpacked.

I needed help with the tension string, and some really wonderful girl named Abbyknitz on Ravelry helped me out.

First little bit on the bobbin – uhm, I guess it’s good I can even get it on the bobbin considering I’ve never touched a wheel in my life. My first goal was to figure out how to treadle and just use the wheel in general.
