My journey into the world of weaving

Afternoon of spinning


Yesterday my cousin came over and we spun together. Looked at fiber, figured out things, looked at lovely books and patterns. Generally just got enthused and infused. We will do this again and promised to do more spinning, less yakking.
She had brought a fleece she had just bought which she is cleaning, carding, and rolling into rolags. And then spinning. I have only done that once but we figured out what step she had missed.
I have committed myself to presenting a talk/demo on weaving and spinning on March 24th so I am beginning to prepare for that and get comfortable spinning and talking about it, both on the wheel and the drop spindle. I can’t bring my loom but I will bring different items like a raddle, a bunch of heddles, shuttles, etc. I think it’s just going to be fun to talk about my passion!

  1. I meet with friends to spin once a month or so. We have yet to master the less yakking thing so we are learning how to spin and yak at the same time. And we take easy projects.

  2. Yakking and spinning with a cousin sounds heavenly. And the best of luck to your presentation – that sounds exciting.
