Fireman needed to get out of the house yesterday. Winter is making lots of people have a little cabin fever. In the grand scheme of things, this too shall pass. So he offered to take me to a yarn/coffee shop over an hour away. I love this guy. I said , “yes!”
This was my sock yarn purchase. (named FUNFETTI!) Yup them’s sparkles. And it is washable wool! !WHEEEE. If that doesn’t brighten a cloudy , cold March day, I’m not sure what will. True to my strict knit nature, I’ll not start the socks until my current WIP is finished. This skein was 30 dollars. That’s a lot of money isn’t it?
When I walked in, this lovely lady took off her headphones ,when I glanced at her spinning, and began to talk to me. She was so excited about what she was doing.
She’s using a SUPPORTED spindle. I need all the support I can get! She learned to spin while in New Zealand on a trip. See how the spindle sits in the little bowl on her lap? This type of spinning looked easy. (haha. I know it would take me a class or two or three)
Spinning is on my list. PERHAPS, I’ll take a class someday. I’m not ready yet. This lovely woman likes the spindles from SPANISH PEACOCK, in Maryland. They have a lovely website.
Watching her spin was a treat. She made it look easy. For now, I’ll knit, and sit, and think about spinning some day.
And who are we kidding? It would be a great excuse to have a pair of angora rabbits. Because..you only live once. And Spring, and rabbits and all that….
So that’s on the someday list!
