Grand Plans

Mr. Fury returns tomorrow night, so I need to get some hausfrau-ing done this weekend. I like him to come home to a clean house. :-)

This morning I ran out to Blobby Lobby and bought a dowel and some wooden car wheels ... to make this! I couldn't turn up any cup hooks there or at Target, so I'll have to try somewhere else this afternoon. Now that I have some super-cool roving in hand (thanks again, Shannon!!), I'm hoping to start experimenting this week. I know myself, and I know that I have to screw up an awful lot before I get the hang of crafting (see also: me learning to knit, me learning to crochet, me learning to knit Continental ... )

Honestly, I read through a million different sites of instructions, but I still didn't understand the mechanics of spinning until I watched drop spindle basics on YouTube. Now it makes sense in theory -- we'll see if I can get it to work in practice!!

Okay, it's yoga time ... gotta go get my namaste on. ;-)

I learned on a toy-wheel spindle and I still love them. I love them so much in fact that I have painted up a bunch of them and will be putting them in my shop within the month!
