The Spinning workshop I signed up for back in July took place this last weekend. It was even better than I hoped. We had the best teacher ever! Leslie was so kind and encouraging. A great teacher. She also didn’t stop with spinning wool. We had alpaca, silk, flax, hemp. We learned to card wool. We started out on a spindle the first morning and after lunch we learned to spin on wheels.
My first attempt was pretty rough:
This is Jasper, a Cotswold sheep. He lives on a farm near Cartersville. He was a dream to spin even though I am a total spazz at it. Like riding a bike, it takes practice. So practice I will and if I decide I am loving it and getting good enough at it, I hope to get a spinning wheel in the next year.
