Knitting and ....Spinning?!!

My new passion...spinning. I am soooo bad at it but I am getting better. It is all on Meaghan (I think I miss spelled...will check later) at Stitch-It Podcast!! She starts a section with the simple word "spinning" and I have been had...She uses a wheel but I am using a new Golding Tsunami...It is soooo nice. But, my back hurts my hands hurt my neck hurts...OK I have to stop. My problem...I do too much at a time. So, in one week I have been doing it every day for several hours in the evening! Did ya notice I never post pics of the inside of my house...good thing!

New podcast will be up in a day. As soon as I am done with the second half I will post it up.

I've been meaning to learn to spin. I have the drop spindles. I have the roving. Now all I need is a teacher!

I am using on-line videos and a few good books as I do not live close enough to the yarn stores. I think I might try a class sometime if offered on a week-end but my closest good source is 40 minutes away

Arlene, I love hearing about your drop spindling efforts. I too was turned onto spinning this summer and love it! Particularly the drop spindle by Golding. I see that you recently got another one too, a Sweetheart that spins finer yarn. I'd love to get a lighter weight Golding sometime fairly soon.

I am also an avid Stitch-It listener. Isn't Meghan great? I love hearing about her spinning and she talks about it quite a bit. Another addict.
