the craft of spinning and enjoying it very much. I have only ‘foggy’ plans on how to use the yarn I produce. I spin for the pleasure of the process. As I sit behind the wheel, the whole body and a mind of a beginner engaged, it is good to be remininded of this again. Sometimes there doesn’t need to be specific aim or end product and we can/should allow ourselves to do something just because we enjoy the process.
Last Saturday I went to the open day of the local Highland Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers and that’s where I had the first go at the wheel. I thank Fionna D. for patience while teaching me, untangling too many twists and letting me use her wheel. I was able to borrow a wheel from the group so now I have one at home to practice.
