Spinning Class #2
Every time I've been in class all I can think about it someday owning our own sheep. I really find it fascinating and it's leading to more things I'm interested in like sheep shearing school. Now I know the basic's the spinning, how to wash wool, how to care for wool and yarn, some of the history behind spinning and the correct terminology. In the next class I will be practicing combing and brushing wool as well as maybe starting on a spinning wheel.
My homework for this week is to spin some of JoAnn's hand dyed wool that is a lovely lime green bluish color. This will be much thinner then the pink fluff I spun so it may be more difficult but I will post pictures when I get it done.
