Oh my gosh I almost wet my pants about the drooling....hahahahahahaha. I can totally relate. Spinning looks like fun, Stephanie! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and good for you for siphoning off some of the money as a reward.

I can't believe you admitted you were drooling! I can see that happening but I don't think I would have the nerve to admit it to anyone.

Looks like a wonderful class, especially with that beautiful rose colors wool. I've always wanted to try spinning... both kinds. Need to add this to my list.

Good for you drools and all:)

LOL! In the emergency department we would call that a postive Q sign....mouth open and tongue hanging out!!! Our friend is interested in spinning the shedded wool from their bison, she would totally love to take a class like that!!!

Oh. My. Gosh. You're a girl after my own heart. It looks like great fun -- drooling and all. I've often wondered about spinning but your comment hit the nail on the head ... I don't need another hobby! Not to mention more tools! I've always wanted to go to Stitches too -- I hope you have a fantastic time!!!

Deb

You definitely look excited in that top photo! Looks like fun, too! At Farmer's Market this past Saturday the booth beside us had a very small bundle of wool from their sheep for sale--certainly looks like your bag was stuffed with huge batts compared to the ones I saw. I hope you're able to find your wheel at the festival and have a good time on Friday, too, in Chicago! Enjoyed the post.

Ivy

Too funny! Yes, by the title, I thought you were talking about bicycle spinning. Don't worry--the one with yarn looks like a lot more fun :)

Too funny. I can just see your drooling! I should take up spinning. Maybe it would help me with my stress. Looked like a fun class and will be great for you since you are such a good knitter! Can't wait to see what you do with the yarn. Nice post.

Maureen

LOL!! about the drool! I so needed a good laugh- work this week has been, let's say...interesting!

Spinning is done...now you can zumba with me on Tuesday :) You will sweat more at Zumba than spinning but I don’t think you will drool! :)

My MIL has a spinning wheel that sits on her hearth, I believe it was her mother's or grandmother's. Most likely I'll end up inheriting it, as I doubt my husband's brother or any of the five granbdchildren will want it. I guess I'll have to learn to spin (assuming it still functions!)! There is a place in Cedar Falls that teaches classes, and I know several ladies in that area that do it regularly.

Donna

This looks like so much fun! I have watched it being done but never tried it. I love the color you did on the spool.
Hugs,
Donna

Ian'tit amazing to see that stuff turn into yarn which you can knit/crochet or whatever. Such a pretty colour. You do really enter another zone/meditation.
Have fun.

Deb

This is my kind of spinning! How fun - I can see how it would be relaxing.

jenclair

This is something I've wanted to try for a long time! Such a cool transformation from fluff to yarn...
