eat! craft! live!

Baking, crafting, mama-ing and taking photos of it all. When I remember.

What? You didn’t think I was going to bail on only the second day did you? ;) Here I am. Better late than never. We had a relatively lazy day today. Bathed the cats. (That’s always fun.) Laundry. Now I’m listening to the sound of the little church kids across the street filter through the cool dark evening. Kolaches for breakfast. Homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner. And…spinning!

I took a spinning class years (and years!) ago but haven’t done it since. So, since knitting has more or less taken over my life, I figured I’d try my hand at spinning again. I ordered some lovely fiber and a handful of drop spindles and let them sit around for a few weeks. *ahem*

Until tonight.

I drafted my fibers. I played with my spindles. I spun them and watched them wobble ever so slightly at the end of my singles. I begged everything to keep spinning in the right direction. And you know what? I totally suck. I know I’ll get better. But right now? Awful. My yarn varies in thickness from practically lace weight to super bulky. Yeah! We’ll just pretend like I meant for it to be that way! Right? Right. It’s arty.

  1. No. I had complete faith in you. I’ve always wanted to learn how to spin but it seems like so much WORK. Yes? Your photos are beautiful. I keep scrolling back up to look at them. Really beautiful shots!

  2. You have very beautiful shots. What kind of camera and lens do you have?
