Weekly Photo Challenge: Old Fashioned

My spinning wheel is not antique, it is a 30 year old Ashford Traditional.  However, the art of spinning is definitely old fashioned.  Some people see hand spinning as a waste of time, too much work, – old fashioned.  I see it as a connection to the past.  For thousands of years people have been turning fibres into yarn by twisting; I am continuing that same twist over generations and countries.

My Spinning Wheel

There are plenty of photographs of spinning wheels, and I was trying to take a nice picture of mine.  I went outside and took the picture looking in at my wheel.  The window reflected the outside as well as my wheel.
