I have been on the spinning wheel again. I can’t say I’ve ‘got it’, but at least it’s taking less time to get going, and longer to mess up. I guess that’s progress?
To be honest, I think the wheel needs some screws tightening (don’t we all) and I need to make consistent effort in making time to practice. But the other day I got a bit fed up with it all going more wrong than right (I really think I’m going to be one of those people unable to DO spinning, if indeed such people exist. Which they do now) so reverted to old faithful… my drop spindle.
Now I don’t want you all running away with the idea that I’m an expert at this either. Oh no. I’m pretty much useless at this too, but it’s easy to pick up and easy to put away and such a little effort goes a long way.
I am still keeping my hopes high that one day, through persistent stubbornness, I will ‘get’ this. That something will ‘click’. That one day I too shall rank among the alchemists that can turn raw fluff into yarn and thus supply my insane yarn addiction.
Other spinners keep telling me to keep practising and it WILL come. But honestly? I think that’s just what they say so they can make their excuses and run to the hills as they marvel at how one woman can be SO clueless…
I’ll keep trying… *sigh*
