My newest spinning fave from Christmas 2019

Hello fiber friends,

I’m super excited over my Christmas gifts from hubby. He made me 6 new drop spindles (to teach our little girls to spin and extras for me to use on making the fine singles I love so much), AND he bought me an Ashford Joy 2 spinning wheel. It is my dream machine, and I’d thought it would be YEARS before I could get one. :open_mouth::heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes: I love this thing, and if it wasn’t for my BC chemo, I’d have spun every day since I opened the box!!!:heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

And the three spools I spun up before my poor left foot cramped and swelled. They aren’t great-looking, but having used a drop spindle has taught me drafting at least.
