I love the rhythm a spinning drop spindle as it gains speed and momentum. My fingers draft out the fibers, and magically the twisted fibre becomes handspun.
Handspinning is relaxing and it is instant gratification as I can spin 50g faster than I can knit it.
There is a spinning frenzy once a month in Dublin at the Eastern Region meeting of the IGWSD.
Drop in with your spindle, spinning wheel, weaving loom or handspun and work that fibre this Sunday 13th March from 2pm to 4.30 pm at The Constant Knitter.
