My wife, Vicki is a fiber junkie. She just loves yarn made from natural fibers like wool and alpaca. When we travel we always have to check out the local yarn shops to see what they have to offer. She enjoys knitting socks the most. Vicki’s hands are always busy with a couple of needles and some yarn. This picture is of the spool of her spinning wheel. Vicki plans on learning to spin so she can make her own yarn from roving, which comes from alpacas or sheep. Once she learns to spin, I know we will be wandering the countryside in search of alpacas to provide her with an endless supply of yarn. Well, we each have our hobbies and Vicki’s hobby will provide me with more picture opportunities.
I like the contrast of the wood and the brass eyelits (not sure if that is what they are called) and the fiber as it winds on the spool.
