Jillian’s Spinning: Living Vicariously

My book manuscript is due next Monday, so I’ve been wandering the internet looking at pretty things.

My favorite: go to Instagram and search the hashtag #MDSW, be prepared for a huge attack of the gimmies. I want all of the fiber, yarn and sheep. All of the people are pretty cute too.

If you follow Kate Larson on Facebook or Instagram you’ll see that her Leicesters are lambing. I am in love with Marcel.

I went to Yarn Fest to teach spinning and came back wanting to weave again. I think one of these is in my future, a bigger rigid heddle loom.

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. Spy on her on her website jillianmoreno.com

    A weaving beginner class is definitely in my future… some day when I don’t live in a shoebox apartment.
    I loved seeing all the #mdsw pics, too. So many happy faces!

    I’ve been lusting after a rigid heddle loom for a while. I almost bought one used recently, but someone else beat me to it.

    love my flip loom, and it works so well with hand spun. My one piece of advice though, go big! The 20 inch is lovely, but the 26 is even better, that way you have more options for clothing and for bigger projects.

    *sigh* You almost make me regret selling my rigid heddle loom, which I bought about 2 years ago and never used. Just the look of the loom in the picture and the fabric on it… so beautiful. But for me, I know I will never get around to it and at this point I would rather have the money. But hats off to all who try and enjoy this amazing craft!
