My new spinning wheel: Kromski Sonata

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.
