Spindles in the Wild

Thanks for joining me!

I take my spinning out into the world whenever I can.  People are incredibly enthusiastic seeing fiber arts in progress, and I’m always moved by the stories of grannies who knit or aunts who weave.  I wanted to create a space online to help feed that enthusiasm, to offer companionship to fellow fiber lovers, and to provide a window to what daily spinning and fiber processing looks like.

When I look online, I see lots of beautiful spindle and wheel shots.  Something along the lines of this:


The reality is much more fun.   Yes, those are alpaca batts wrapped on paper towel tubes.  And when the suns out, I’ll use any available surface to dry fleece!  The pictures won’t always be pretty, but they will show the many different aspects of taking fiber to finished project.

Discoveries happen when knowledge and theory meet in practice.
