"Up for sale is a old fasioned wool machine, I think you feed it wool and it turns it into wool like thread for sewing, Its NOT working, but its more like a souvenier. Im not sure if its antique or not. Its got engraved in it ASHFORD, MADE IN NEW ZEALAND."
"...I think you feed it wool..." and it magically turns into wool!! What a description!!!!
Like The Singing Alien*, this makes me laugh every time I read it!!!
This is an image I hooked off the Ashford site. The wheel she was selling looked just like this. And sold for $25. I was so tired Thurs night I just crashed into bed and forgot all about bidding for it.
Bugger, and double bugger.
I think a spinning wheel would be a lovely thing to have a go at. Certainly with all the knitting I am doing. And the alpacas down the road who's wool just gets chucked cos nobody wants it. Nobody else...
*Ah, you don't know The Singing Alien?
P.S. Anyone got a spinning wheel they don't want any more?
