A few days ago, I set up Ruth, my beloved Kromski Sonata. Since that time, I’ve been spinning. I quickly learned that I needed to practice a bit before I got the consistent yarn that I’m used to seeing with my handspun, and I’m perfectly fine with that. I’m currently spinning with some of my raw wool that was turned into rolags. I have no project planned for the yarn. I’m just enjoying the process. Perhaps, as I progress, I’ll have a project in mind, however, even if I don’t, I’ll keep spinning.
One of the many things I love about my spinning wheel is that it’s portable. Ruth has traveled with me many places and will continue to do so. Towards the end of last week, I purchased some combed top from a local fiber artist. I’m looking forward to receiving it so that I can begin spinning.
