Spinning is Fun!

During our Thursday (December 11, 2008) night meeting at the Hamilton Library in Shreveport, I was finally been granted the opportunity to learn a new aspect of fiber arts---spinning. Sharon, bless her wonderfully generous heart, has given me a learning kit along with additional (4 oz?) roving of Romney to play with. Sharon showed me how to start, how to draft and how to keep from having heavy spots in the resulting thread. She has also told me how to ply when I reach that stage...

Spinning is fun!
