Today I learned to “Sit and Spin”

Well, at least I got the gist, I think. I bought a drop spindle and some roving and got started spinning. I have a long way to go, but I am absolutely hooked! I had to force myself to put the spindle down to get supper started. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but I caught the “spinning 101” episode of “Knitty Gritty” and that was it. I had to get started. New joy. I dream of one day going from sheep to sweater and going to elementary schools to teach the kids about it. I’m visiting a home economics class in Lebanon, TN on Tuesday to talk to the students about knitting and the fiber arts. I can’t believe the joy I get from yarn.
