I now fully understand what spinners mean when they say it's addictive. Last night I went to spin club at the mill, and it was absolutely worth the drive. It's nice to talk to people while you craft with your hands. I feel like our society has lost touch with that, but the mill has held on tight.
ps. I made the red pokeberry wool and fawn alpaca yarn today. It's nice being able to create something tangible and complete in such a short period of time. Once it's roving, it spins up fast! It's gonna be fun to experiment with mixing colors.
