Oh, how I love to spin! It is a calming past-time, the end product of which is something you can use to make many more things with. It's a double whammy of hand crafted loveliness!
Never mind the occasional frustrations where the fleece slips through my fingers and I have to fiddle bits of yarn back through the orifice, or when my concentration leaves me and an extra thick slug of rovings pop onto the bobbin. I only get momentarily angry when the two yarns I'm plying ply themselves together in a horrendous knotty mess and I spend precious minutes separating them, all the while trying to figure out how I will keep them apart from each other until I want them to meet.
Thought of the day: Focus less on what you can't yet achieve, more on what you've accomplished already, and what you can learn from it.
Below is a video of me using my current spinning wheel.
