Glorious Athena

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?

Athena is lovely! I purchased a Sonata from the same place and I love mine! Happy spinning.

She's a beauty! I really like castle style wheels... I have 2 already, and no room for more, though I have a feeling there will be more spinning wheels in my future.

I hope you enjoy many happy hours of spinning with her - love her name too.

Your wheel is beautiful! I love the look of Kromski wheels. I'm an old fashioned girl and love the old style wheels much more than the more modern looks. Not that I'd turn one down, mind you.......

Have fun spinning on her!
