Hi All!
I'm new on this board, I usually post in the handweaving board.
I've bought a Kromsky minstrel, unfinished wheel that I paint and lacquered.

Those yarns look scrumptious! Are you planning on dyeing them or are you just going to use them as they are? Or do you know yet?

Your wheel is stunning -- I've never seen such delicate handpainted accents.  Gorgeous.

Your yarn is so nice -- lovely, and welcome to the spinning board!
