Maybe i need to learn how to spin... All signs are pointing to it.
1.) My mom has this old wheel from my great-great-grandmother's upstate NY farm that has sat in our house (as decoration) since i was a kid. No one in my family has spun since the 1800's. It needs refurbishing but i think it could easily be made functional. (it's beautiful too)
2.) I'm in awe of those who spin and create such beautiful yarn. Case in point, check out Silver's blog - she's made some gorgeous stuff!
3.) I have a good friend from another bulletin board i frequent who owns her own sheep/cattle ranch. Out of the blue she offered to send me some wool when they shear in Sept. Ack what would i do with it?? :shock:
The truth is, i'm skeered to spin and dye my own yarn... I shouldn't be, but it seems like such a big undertaking.
sigh But the signs are there...
Do most people start with drop spinning? Is it hard?
