And then, there were two

Well, at least for now...

Meet the newest addition to the family - a Louet Julia S11 spinning wheel. I've named her Julia-Morgan (just Morgan for short).
The yarn you see on her was a 3ply merino - I spun the singles on Rory, and then plied them onto Morgan (the Louet bobbins hold more yarn).

This is my first yarn that was done on the Louet start to finish. It is a batt from CopperPot Woolies on Etsy - with lots of different fibers in it. It was definitely fun to spin, and I love how it came out.

And this is the current on the wheel project - well, one of them. This is merino from All Spun Up on Etsy - in shades of browns and natural, and I LOVE it!!!
Back to spinning!!! Hopefully I'll have some finished skeins to show you next time.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in a great starter wheel, Rory is looking for a new home (by necessity - but I will miss her!).
