This last Saturday started my first Beginning Spinning class. It was a lot of fun. I look forward to having the last half of the class on the 15th. I most certainly will be offering classes again. I am also open to teaching on a one-on-one basis. I love introducing people to natural fibers and the hand spinning. There is something so peaceful about all the fibers slipping through one’s fingers.
I am looking forward to tomorrow night as well. Our knit night group has asked that I bring my wheel and talk about spinning there during our get-together. I do enjoy these groups that I have become a part of. I don’t know if I have said it here or not but this community has been incredibly welcoming to our family. It feels like we’ve moved home even though I moved here sight-unseen. My husband had at least done a quick visit before we moved. We do love an adventure. 🙂
As far as the matching project I have going… I have the natural/ecru color just about done. Now I need to move on to matching colors. This should be the real challenge. I have a couple of tweedy colors to match that have a thread plied into it. My worry is matching that thread. It is a multi-colored thread. I may actually end up spinning a small single to get the color right. We’ll see what I find for colors.
I’m off to work on spinning and knitting. I’m finding I really don’t follow knitting patterns well. Kudos to those of you that can. I find myself always changing a pattern ever so slightly and then at times not so slightly, but rather drastically. Someday I will figure out that if I want my end product to look like the picture; I need to follow directions.
