Spinning? Not so much…

A few years ago I was gifted a lovely spindle and some purple/mauve mix fiber.  These came in a “learn to spin” kit, complete with instructions, etc…

Spindle and Fiber

Fast forward to present.  I have spun enough of this fiber, on this spindle, in the intervening YEARS to confidently say “I know how” and “I don’t care for spinning”.  I think I would be able to master a wheel much faster and enjoy it more, but I still don’t think that spinning fiber is the craft of choice for me.  Let’s just say I consider it well worth my $$ and my time saved to purchase a nice hank of cashmere, silk, or even alpaca that someone else has lovingly spun into luscious fibery goodness.

So, even though it may not be my thing either, I will take the rest of this fiber mass and attempt to needle felt something.  If that doesn’t work, and you happen to be a close friend or relative of mine reading this, you can probably expect a nice felted bar or two of bath soap in your Christmas packages this year.  The spindle is going on the Christmas tree as an ornament.

  1. An ornament! And you don’t even have to worry about adding a hook!

    (I’ve just started spinning, myself, so I don’t know if it’s going to be Yet Another of the many hobbies, or a passing fad just yet.)

  2. Awwww…that spindle is gonna get lonesome with out any wool, LOL! But I totally understand. To many crafts, arts and projects with way to little time.

Is anybody out there?
