Spinning

handspun-light It seems that I may have found a way to relieve some of my holiday stress.

I have been learning to spin on & off over the course of this year seriously. I have a beautiful saxony wheel that my husband bought me as an anniversary gift some years ago, but I wasn’t really hitting it off with spinning until I got my Ashford Joy this past summer.

I really wanted to learn how to spin and have taken only one “real” beginners class last January, but have been reading a lot on my own and practicing almost every week.

I even took my wheels with me up to our campsite in the Catskills this summer for some uninterrupted quiet spinning & learning. I have found that I really love doing this.  It is so relaxing, once I took the advice of my friend, Delia, who told me to “just let it go” and not to put so much thought into it, and stop holding on to the fiber with the grip of an alligator.

I know I still have quite a bit to learn but here are some pics of my recently spun yarn:

The grey is 60/40 Border Leicester Angora Blend & the blue is unknown fiber content from spinning class samples.
