I’m in a strange situation. I have an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel that my MIL has let me borrow for the past 2 years. I love spinning on it and can easily sit there for hours. My problem is that I now have a baby at home and I don’t have hours to spend spinning. If I get an hour to knit at night after he’s gone to bed I’m grateful.
It’s too much for me right now to get my wheel out and set up to only spin for a little bit. I can’t leave it set up because I have two cats and they love to explore and play with the yarn/roving. I was thinking about downgrading to a drop spindle or chakra (sp?) or a traveling wheel that’s more portable. Am I just crazy?
I was thinking about having a spinning bag that I could take with me anywhere (think Ghandi) and it would be quick and easy to take out and put back away. Does anyone have any recommendations or comments? Or should I just suck it up and learn how to set up/take care of my wheel faster?
