I have already named this lovely little wheel 'Pearl' Pirtle. She was originally created in the 1970's by Paul & Beverly Pirtle. Paul was a retired Air Force engineer and made the Pirtle spinning wheels out of their garage in Huntington Beach, CA. Pearl is one of approximately 200 Pirtle wheels made. Due to her lovely 1" yarn guides and orifice, Pearl and I should be turning out some fun, funky and large art yarns soon!
Other Fun Facts..................
I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.
I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)
'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
