One of the things that Sugar Plum has been itching to try is spinning yarn. Our local yarn shop recently offered a class for adults on spinning with a drop spindle and using a spinning wheel which our little girl really wanted to take. Our friend Monika, who owns the shop, suggested a class for children instead, so we've been happily going to the Fiber Studio for Sugar Plum's lessons the past two days. Monika taught Sugar Plum how to use the drop spindle and how to work a spinning wheel (which was one of Sugar Plum's greatest wishes!). Now she'll be practicing her new craft little by little and maybe someday she and Auntie Kate can spin together side by side!
