I am in love with Pinterest, I spend time there every day. It’s my favorite way to take a break from work, looking at all of the beautiful inspiring things and gathering all of the helpful tutorials and how-tos.
I just searched Spinning, fiber, yarn and there are pages of how-tos on making and dyeing yarn. There is a drum carder powered by a bicycle:
Another thing I love about Pinterest is all of the connections, finding new things, remembering old things, following what my friends are obsessing about (go look and see how many pins I have on embroidery), what friends are knitting or dreaming about knitting, looking at inspiring things or to just rest my mind from a busy day.
I collect ideas for spinning, knitting and stitching projects. There are recipes I’m sure I’m going to make. I have a folder for all of the houses I pretend to live in and one for things that I think are cozy.
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.
