I’ll leave room for the possibility, anyway. I’m thinking about learning to spin. When I was looking at giveaway gifts on Etsy, I came across “learn to spin” kits which included a drop spindle and gorgeous hand-dyed roving to get started. I managed to talk myself out of it, since it was the color that caught my eye, and the seller was in the UK – I’m sure the shipping charges were very reasonable for an ocean voyage, but not when this was a whim and I have no idea if I’ll even like it.
The owner of my LYS mentioned to me a couple of years ago that she thought I might enjoy spinning (based on a conversation we were having about yarn texture), and I keep coming back to the thought. What holds me back is the fact that I have NO TIME right now between work, the kids and house, and my other projects to learn a new medium that will probably engross me. But then again there would be the lusciousness of fiber through my fingers, and….oh wait, I already wrote about that!
Do any of you spin your own yarn? Or have you tried it and walked away? Let me know your experience, please!
