WIP and Some Spinning

Is it time to jump and find a new Planet to live, I guess not right away.  In the meantime I will be doing some spionning and some knitting.  I have been practicing my wheel spinning and I have learned a lot by just doing.  Some peolpe do not get what spinning is all about.  Even though you can produce lots of yarn, you can never compete with a mill.  It is possible to make enough yarn for a sweater, just not that fast and then who is in a hurry.

I am hoping to spin one hour a day for this week, but I started Sunday and I have had some aha moments in which I have seen my spinning making big progress.
