You Spin my Head Right Round, Right Round

What should a fiber obsessed girl do when the weather turns too warm for knitting?  Spin.  Not the gym class kind of spinning, but spin fibers into yarn.

Why should one learn to spin?

  1. It feels magical.
  2. It is oddly soothing.
  3. It does not require wrapping yarn around your fingers or resting a warm knitted or crocheted thing on your lap.
  4. You can get creative with it.
  5. Spinning will give you a better understanding of the characteristics of yarn.
