The wheel you see here is commonly called a Norwegian wheel (at least in the US), although not all spinning wheels in Norway are or were in this style.

I like the state of this spinner's room, with all her tools, and fibers, and yarn gathered round about her. Even the tall clock is pressed into service holding yarn. Look familiar? Except for the costume, it could be any modern spinner reveling in her craft.
Here's another spinner working at the same type of wheel in a photograph taken in 1893.
She does seem to be enjoying herself, doesn't she?
I like to make connections to the past when a modern-day spinner brushes up against something that harks back to another time.
