K is for Kiwi

Kiwi is a spinning wheel made by the Ashford company. Ashford's in New Zealand, which explains the name. Kiwi wheels are some of the least expensive, which explains why I have one.

What I can't explain is why it sits unused. I enjoy using my drop spindle. I like making yarn. I have a little stash of fiber to use for that purpose. I painted the wheel so that the MDF portion of it would look more cheerful. I hunted down a broken part and repaired it. Still, it sits untouched day after day. Maybe I'm scared it'll break again?
