In the past year, I have taken three classes, from three different teachers, that in some part taught spinning fat, lofty yarn.
After ten months, I can finally spin fat, lofty yarn; it takes my hands a long time to learn. I have to watch and listen to other spinners, have teachers watch me and I have to practice, a lot.
I practice by slipping my learning yarn into my daily spinning and I practice by having special learning sessions. Spinning new in between regular spinning works the best for me, it feels like playing. The other feels like have-to spinning.
My hands started learning lofty yarns last September and this skein from last week is the best I’ve done yet.
How do your hands learn?
