Jillian’s Spinning: More Samples and Win My Craftsy Class

Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I am getting a little sick of spinning samples. Well,  I think I’m getting sick of spinning samples. Here are my latest for my Happy Camper Retreat which is this weekend! I’m teaching spinning variegated tops, it’s one of my favorites!

I always think I’m sick of spinning samples and then another idea or ‘what if’ pops in my head and I’m off sampling again. I am exactly the same way with millspun yarn, I could swatch forever and just occasionally make things. I think that means I’m really a process person – a processing processor. I am getting the itch to finish a little something, a hat, mittens, a scarf. I’ll see if I can fit it in between sampling and thinking about sampling.

    I entered & I’m hoping I win that class. I’m a total newbie @ spinning. My husband surprised me with a spinning wheel a couple of years ago & I’m still trying to figure out what to do with it!

    I’ve been learning heaps with the beginner spinning class on craftsy, something like your new class would be great to help with fine tuning my plying game.

    I am not a newbie, but still having trouble spinning the yarn I really want… Trouble with plying and grist, so I would love to take this class. Slowly working my way through all the spinning classes on Craftsy – they are a great resource.
