spinning dreams

I'm not sure if it's my current obsession with Robin's Egg blue or the fact that I keep getting Knit Picks catalouges full of wool roving and drop spindles, but I've been finding myself dreamig about learning to spin lately and to fixate a little on this little spinning wheel. Isn't it pretty? I didn't even know spinning wheels could look like that. I have no idea what all those things do but I don't really care, I have a total crush on it.
It would look so perfect next to my favorite chair, I can just imagine myself spinning away in the evenings, making yarn in just the color I want. That, of course, means I'd also have to start dying yarn but hey, in for a penny, in for a pound, right?

Somebody save me from myself.

Oh wait, did you say it's $700?

OK, maybe a drop spindle would be a little more practical at this point. Or, you know, just buying yarn.

  1. There's a farm in Louisa where they raise their own sheep for wool, dye it, and spin it themselves. They sold their yarn at the West End farmer's market last year. I wonder if they will be back this year? I kept wishing I knew how to knit or crochet or SOMETHING so I would have an excuse to buy some of that beautiful yarn!
