Before we went to the wheel we practiced spinning on a Turkish drop spindle . She learned quickly. After the basics she moved on to use her new fiber drafting skills to make yarn on the Louet spinning wheel. Rebecca's fleece to yarn journey….
In about 30 minutes she was building up a nice ball of hand spun singles yarn
some students take longer to learn but it was as if she had learned to spin yarn before .
I trurly believe some of our ancestry and DNA leave markers and attribute to different learning sets especially resurfacing in the fiber arts.
Her grand mother spun she told me latter.
Rebecca knits and crochets, I took a shot of a cute snail she made
Wait , it is not just a snail ! How clever she crocheted around a retractable tape measure
…..you pull his head and out comes the tape!
push his shell and it retracts!
The transition to the wheel can be challanging but Rebecca made it smoothly
S17 wheel and the wonderful Louet art yarn flyer
she will soak it and let it dry at home to set the twist . Her first hand spun little skein …. her spinning journey has begun….
Peace through fibers
