Some have asked for images of my new spinning wheel...et voici! The walnut hued Kromski Sonata. Purchased from here after sampling several other wheels.
I was waiting to post her until she named herself, finally...Athena. A Greek symbol of courage and friendship. It took courage for me to take up spinning and invest in a wheel. Friendship came in the way of all the people (virtual and local) who have helped me begin to learn the craft.
Athena is also a patron of all useful and elegant arts. Fitting eh?
