This has the potential to be very bad…

Posted by Amber on April 3, 2007

So, some people having been telling about how great and wonderful is to spin your own yarn. And I’ve been resisting. First, because I don’t really need so much more yarn, and second because the only local place that offers lessons (Springwater Fiber Workshop) has only offered spinning class on nights when I’m off learning about statistics. (Or when I’m on the other side of the world.)

So when they put up the summerish schedule, and the spinning class was on Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday… I couldn’t really use reason #2. And although reason #1 is still perfectly valid, the fact that I don’t need more yarn has never stopped me from buying it, so it may as well not stop me from learning to make it.

Still, it’s a shame that the class isn’t being offered before MDS&W. Then I could buy fluff. But if I buy fluff at MDS&W, and then it turns out I don’t like spinning, then I’ll have a bunch of fluff (and fluff takes up so much more space than yarn!)

    But you also know other spinners who may be willing to buy pretty fluff from you if you find that you don’t like spinning… ;-)
