Not that type of spinning
First, when I say "fiber" I don't mean the type you eat. Although that is important it is not the type I want to be creative with. I am talking about the plants, and animal fiber that you can spin into yarn. I have started with wool but will soon be off onto other animal or plant fiber.
Second, when I say "spinning" I don't mean the type you do in a gym on stationary bikes. (I would rather ride outside) I mean the type you do on a spinning wheel or drop spindle that takes the "fiber" and turns it into yarn.

Now that we have that all clear lets talk about my adventure in spinning! I decided on a whim to take a spinning class at the local yarn shop "Knit Unique" in Logan, Utah. It was summer, I wasn't taking any statistics classes so why not something fun, something new, something with fiber. Well, first I was thinking this is fun but I will just buy my yarn. Then after the 2 hours of drop spindle I thought hey not bad. But, after the 2 hours on the spinning wheel I was hooked. I am still practicing on my drop spindle because I haven't decided on the perfect wheel yet.
