Spinning a yarn
Yesterday I went as a guest to the local spinners' and weavers' group dyeing day. I was given a spinning wheel shortly before I came here, but have not learnt to spin yet. I'm very keen to dye my own wool, and although I stock wool dyes, I haven't actually used them. This was not a class, just each member doing their own thing and dyeing either roving, or spun wool. The photos are not great as I was sitting in a deck chair and swivelling around to take them.
