Recently the Canberra Spinners and Weavers advertised a spinning class and was overrun with knitting ravelers wanting to learn to spin thanks to someone putting the word out.
I loved the 3 hours of adult time each Thursday night learning a new skill. I loved the feel of the fibre in my hands and the rhythm of the treadle. I loved seeing what everyone made and how each of us found a different part of the process came more easily.
And at the end of it all I came up with this.
I love it - I love that from fleece came something amazing. I love that it is so silly looking in its imperfection. I love that it is something to get better at.
now I just need to find more time.
