You Spin Me Right Round Baby…

I finally – after a year of trying – made it to a Tall Pines Spinners & Weavers Guild meeting tonight! Now I am pumped! I want to spin again! Right now! Spin, spin, spin! Marni, who wrote one of the book reviews that I used on the Pointy Sticks podcast, and her husband were there. Matter of fact, her husband was tonight’s speaker, and he gave a very informative lecture on spindle spinning. It was amazing! They both know so much about spinning, it is fantastic. I learned things tonight that I have wanted to know for a year now. The biggest thing was how to tell if you are getting enough twist in your spinning. I can tell when I over twist it, but I wasn’t ever really sure if I did enough. Now I know.

So I have my first spindle full single ply yarn from the fiber I spun last summer. Now I need to get it off the spindle and ply it. Until I do that, I can’t spin any more yarn! And I really want to spin, right now. I have some roving I bought at Kid & Ewe that is calling my name.
