A Mouse's Tale

Random scurryings of a writer.

Spinning without a wheel.

Well, since last year’s disappointment of learning that the spinning wheel in Glenda’s attic was indeed just that, the wheel part, Joe and I had made ourselves a couple drop spindles. I bought some roving on Etsy, but due to everything getting crazy with the kids at school and then searching for a house, I never got to working with it. I started it all today. However, it was definitely a process. I had no clue that pre-drafting is pretty much a must for your yarn to have any continuity at all. I’m hoping that with a little practice it will all come out better than what it currently is. On that same note, at least I’ve started the process, right?

    Me either! It’s kind of like buying yourself a Christmas gift that you forgot your bought yourself, only to find it years later in the back of a closet!
