Hub, the amazing wonder spinner
My "girls" got me a drop spindle for my birthday. It's amazing the shopping they manage to do for being toddlers... ;)
So yesterday at the EW Knits Ravelry meet up Kim showed me how to get started. She's been dying for me to spin. She loves it and is definitely a spinning missionary. Everyone at the meet up said I was off to a fantastic start. They actually made me blush. So I felt pretty good about myself.
Then I came home... with a spindle and some fiber for Hub. He has talked about how he thinks it would be fun to spin ever since I started knitting. I took all my stuff out the the car went to climb in and just couldn't do it. I ran back in and picked up a spindle and some fiber for Hub. The girls were napping when I got home so I got to show him how right away. Here's his first yarn...
Hmm... not feeling quite as good about myself now. lol! I KNEW he'd be meticulous and just perfect. That's just his way. He's really wanted to do this for a while, so we'll see. I think he wants something to do while I sit and knit in the evenings. He says spinning looks very relaxing. I sure wouldn't mind!
I'm off to enjoy the sunshine. It really is spring now!
