fiber: AA Norwegian Wheel

Thoughts on Wheels and Spinning

So, I was pointed to a blog entry by Fiberlife called "Making a Spinner" (it's her Nov. 23 entry). It's very well-written, has a lot of good points - the most notable being that the best wheel does Not make the best Spinner.

I agree with that statement....but wanted to put my own thoughts down on why I (and others) go out and spend big bucks on wheels, when perhaps a run-of-the-mill kit wheel can do the same thing.

And now, I think I have some spare time this AM to actually put my money where my mouth is - I'm gonna go dig up some wool and spin a bit before work.
