Symphony Spinning Wheel

Let me show off my grandkids first! First up is Averie looking cute in his Tiger hat and mittens.

Then there is Mr.Aiden looking dashing in his jaunty Hat! (See how he poses!)

Then there is Ms.Addi in her fairy outfit... I do believe in Fairies, I do, I do! With cute toes!

Then there is Bessie...My new Kromski Symphony spinning wheel! Isn't she just grand! Ahhhh, double drive! I love it! The pull in is so gentle, and it's spins so fast that I was able to mange....

thread weight singles. LOOK at this....finer than frog hair! Yes, that's the Montadale fleece I just got in. I have 2 fleeces washed up now, and 2 to go. This is spun up from some hand carded rollrags I sat and made during the snow storm we were hit with last week. I plan to finish up this bobbin and navajo ply it. I have some merino/angora that I'd bought with the intentions of breaking in this wheel, and I'm itching to get 'er done! The angora/merino is the ultimate in soft!
I was turned onto some cream colored alpaca too. I'm thinking of doing a mobius scarf with both.
I can't wait!

Cute babies! And that wheel is a beauty! I'm so jealous. :)

Thanks Anita! The babies are so much fun! They both sat up on the side of the bathtub today, watching me wash fleece. Aidan said,"EWWWWW, it's dirty Nana." Addy chimed in,"Yucky!PSSST!", which I think is her new favorite thing to say.
The wheel spins like a dream. I can't wait to finish the Montadale so I can spin up the angora/merino! Ahhhh...there is only so many hours in a day!

Oh my heavens, those babies are cute!

Didn't know frogs have hair, but goodness you do a wonderful job spinning.

Thanks Heidi!
The babies are growing like little weeds! And Nana is loving them to death!

LOL...I've never seen frog hair either! (I'd probably try to spin it!)
