A Quick Spin

It takes me about 11 hours to spin a full 'batch': that is, fill two bobbins with spinning and then ply them together. I'm in 'crochet mode' at the moment, rather than 'spinning mode', so I decided to just spin a half-batch. I have to wash this lot. It'll dry quickly in this weather, so I should be able to crochet again this afternoon.

  1. I didn't think that it would take so long to spin, you must have lots of patients

  2. It seems that any fiber related task takes much more time than one would imagine. I'm not deterred. I still want to learn to spin!

  7. Wow. But I can see it being a kind of meditation once you get into the rhythm. Remember Gandhi and his khadi?

  8. Absolutely. I like the idea that the world would be a better place if we all spun!
