Tomorrow, will make two weeks that I’ve had my spinning wheel.

I’ve named her Ruth, after the lady in the Bible. Hardworking, Christian, honest… she was the perfect example of a Proverbs 31 woman. Guess what? I’ve actually made yarn on Ruth!

And while my yarn leaves a lot to be desired…

I’m turning fiber into yarn! I’m fascinating that I’m starting a process that begins everything related to yarn and fabric. I’ve wanted to spin ever since I was a child. Initially, I’d planned on learning spinning when I purchased my loom in 2013; however, I thought that learning two crafts at once would be a bit overwhelming and so I held off until I had the time to really commit to learning spinning. That time is now. Later today, I’m taking a two hour private lesson spinning class. I’m looking forward to that.
