Twice a year my spinning gang hits the road and goes to spin at a family cabin four hours north of where we live.
We spin and knit, watch movies and eat a lot. We relax and focus on a hobby we all love.
Last weekend we went. It was beautiful and sunny, we even spent some time spinning lakeside.
With no work or family constraints I got a lot of spinning done – almost a pound of fiber. I spun randomly filling bobbins with what appealed to me at the time. Of course I brought three times as many projects than I could possibly accomplish.
The spinning part of my brain feels relaxed now and I feel reconnected to my spinning women.
Jillian is the author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts.
She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
