Here is my perfect princess, Sappho, looking her hungriest for the camera, and my newest priceless acquisition, a Kromski Minstrel spinning wheel. I made fingering weight, 2-ply handspun tonight. Almost two ounces. In one night. It’s soft, balanced, lovely. Some day, when you too can take advantage of a pile of christmas money all for one thing, you must get one of these. Spinning wheels are indeed magic. This wheel has magically made me into a better spinner. I’m not even cussing that much anymore! I sit, entranced, lulled by quiet whirrs and ticks, making yarn, string, thread!
I’m in love.
