What I wouldn't give for one of these.

Some of the spinning wheels that were available at Black Sheep Gathering. I've been drooling over so many of them. Admittedly part of the reason is I've been having so many issues with learning how to spin on a drop spindle and its probably a futile hope that the spinning on a wheel would be easier. The problem I seem to have with the drop spindle is I can't seem to be able to pat my head while rubbing my stomach at the same time. Most of the time the spindle ends up spinning back on itself and I end up cursing.

Black Sheep Gathering

So I went to my very first Black Sheep Gathering and while it was only for a day it was a lot of fun! I will say though being very new to all of this it was a little overwhelming with everything that was going on and all the beautiful yarns and rovings. I picked up this alpaca/wool yarn that I hope to turn into some leg warmers. It would be something nice and warm to wear in the craft room during the winter.
