I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Spinning Sunday

The book on the left is something I am looking forward to to help me along my spinning.    Iit is not Sunday any more, but I can tell you I spent most of the weekend practicing my spinning.  The discovery of my spinning skills and how I spin was a nice thing to see.  As I went on a day by day basis I realized that this spinning is like drop spindle spinning in a way.  Well this guy has gone bunkers you say!  Not at all , your body , specifically your hands , your feet and the coordination of both needs to be learned by the brain.  It may take about 21 days of daily continuous practice to create this habit.  As I am going along this journey I see how my drafting changes and how my yarn develops different.  The last skein of yarn that I did yesterday actually had a bit of draping without much blocking and the twist was a lot better than the other day.  Anyway thanks for stopping by and I am hoping to spin along  on drop spindle and spinning wheel and have a lot of fun.
