A New Fiber Endeavor

August 29, 2008 at 8:12 pm 1 comment

I took a spinning class with my sister-in-law at a local shop. We started on the drop spindles to get a feel for the process and what we’re trying to make the fiber do. We both had some nice beginner’s luck and were having a good time. I found it very satisfying to take something raw (almost anyway, it was washed and combed), like wool, and create something else. And I’m not even a knitter. Not much anyway, I can do a straight knit and purl but that’s it.

I’m enjoying it for sure and if I were to be serious, I’m pretty sure I’d have to get a wheel. The drop spindle is tough for the long haul. But I’m not even sure I’ll delve into this one like the quilting. Maybe someday if we get some alpacas.
