.....things just take your breath away.

I had a new young spinner come to me for her first lesson yesterday. This video was taken about forty minutes in to the session. At least half of that time had been taken up with talking, handling fibre, treadling practice. So this is twenty minutes max of actual putting it all together spinning time. She had never even seen a spinning wheel before, and only handled a few alpaca locks.

What can one say?
