Spinning at the Cafe Donagh
Yesterday we infringed a bit on Ruth's knitting group (the Yarn Spinners of Inishowen) with a spinning wheel as well as some drop spindles. We sat down with Michelle who was quite keen on learning how to spin. Seema brought up her Ashford wheel (which we have been carting around in her little car for a week!) and gave Michelle a few lessons. She did catch on very quick and I just got a message from her saying that she has already been looking at wheels on eBay!
People were quite curious about what we were doing. This proved to be a great way to tell people about the project and the workshops that we will be holding next week. We hope that a lot of people make it out!
