One of my favorite projects in any PLY is the Pacific Trillium Stole by Melinda VerMeer.

I always find it so interesting and beautiful, the different wheels we spinners use. I love that there is a wheel for everyone. I thought you might like to see the wheels that were at the workshop in New Mexico. There’s some well-known wheels and a few lesser known ones!
