Trapped with nothing else to do I took her up on her offer to teach me. I sort of got the idea, but I also read this instructable and found it very helpful. I am quite excited about my new hobby (come on I've done it for a total of an hour, it counts as a hobby). I wasn't able to spin through the whole super bowl, because I accidentally started watching the game and it was very interesting (also, you know, I had to talk to people). But I am still in possession of the spindle.
I am spinning my yarn too tight, but I will work on that with the next batch of fluff.
It fills me with joy to try new arts and play with them. Have you tried anything new lately?
