Handwork and Spinning

What was the first thing Jen and Caiden did this morning when they woke up? Caiden went to knit and Jen went to spin… Caiden’s knitting is coming along nicely and he is enjoying the process. Jen has always loved spinning, here she is busy finishing off a Yak roving, such exceptionally soft fibre…

Erin mentioned she would like to learn to spin and so her sister showed her how…

Now, later today, Erin’s spinning looks as if it is something she has always known how to do. She has learnt a new skill, I can see how this has empowered her spirit, it is wonderful to see…

    They make we want to get a wheel and learn how to spin.
    Tasha Tudor said that her grand was a fine spinner…that her smaller fingers did a better job.

    such a gorgeous tradition to hand down to your children, I can just tell that its something they will appreciate and look back on fondly in years to come.

    What beautiful moments. How wonderful that you have been able to share such wonderful skills with them and they are now sharing with eachother. What special family memories you are all creating.

    Blessings, Elizabeth

    Perhaps, then I could learn, too. Perhaps I should come and have Jenn teach me? Perhaps that moment between sisters is exactly what the Lord envisioned when he built the earth for us. And your family will stay together because of moments like this. Even if there was some impatience on either side of the learning – but I somehow think there wasn’t much. Knowing how to do something – lucky Erin.

    How neat that you are passing down these skills to your children and they are teaching each other. It gives me so much satisfaction and pleasure when I see The Native’s teaching other new things that I’ve taught them. Makes it all seem worth it somehow.
