Sometimes I don’t realise how much I love something until it’s gone. Sound familiar?
I thought I was well and truly into the spinning groove after spinning 200g of fibre and mastering navajo plying but it seems not. I’ve hardly touched my wheel lately, even though it’s sitting ready to go in my living room, right next to my corner of the sofa. I can’t really explain what’s happened – I guess I’ve been busy with other things?
The clues that I was craving spinning started appearing when I began following some fabulous spinners on Instagram and drooling over their photos. Then, I bought fibre to dye. Next I planned to knit up some of my handspun and most recently, I bought a Craftsy class on drafting.
I guessed something was up and resolved to find some time to spin. But I haven’t managed it yet. Then, today I stumbled across a podcast all about spinning. How great is that? Rachel from Welford Purls started a monthly podcast in January, all about spinning. (How did I miss this? Rachel is one of the fabulous spinners I follow on Instagram). Anyway, I’ve watched one a half episodes so far and I’m loving it – Rachel has definitely convinced me I NEED to spin. If you need some spinning inspiration do go check her out.
So, I’ve been thinking of ways to get myself behind my wheel – spin at the same time every day? Spin for just 10 minutes every day? Spin some fabulous fibre? Start a quest to spin every fibre? I’m still coming up with ideas – and I’m open to suggestions. What works for you?
In the meantime, I thought I’d leave you with few fantastic links so you too can find some spinning inspiration – enjoy!
