I am not to far into this craft.. not far enough to forget the frustrations of watching other people "drafting" their fiber, watching the fluid motions of spininng the spindle.. yarn being made..

And my two left hands.. that suddenly after 50 some odd years decided NOT to work..

So while everthing is still fresh in my mind.. (pre expert) I want to share..

I want everyone to know.. it will come.. you WILL make yarn.. it will be even.. if thats your goal

Once you master it.. the yearing for something bigger badder.. a little more antique.. so you can really go back..
A spinning wheel.. OH the words.. double, single treadle, upright, portable.. EXPENSIVE.. pvc cheap..
All of these must be explored, talked about and realished.

Group hug
