So I really, really, really, want a spinning wheel. Trouble is, they are very, very, very expensive, and this is sad for me as a soon to be unemployed teacher. However, there is hope…..
I found a DIY spinning wheel pdf online (just google dodec spinning wheel and its the first link) and sent it over to my wonderful dad – who is a carpenter- and now we have a summer project!
Apparently there is infomation missing which can be found at the dodec Ravelry group page Dad seems to think its all there though, so if you download the PDF you should be ok. He is currently altering the design a bit to improve the look of the wheel. I’m so excited to get started on this in the summer and will blog it’s progress as it happens.
I hope I can paint it green!
