.... trying to spin strips of fabric as suggested by Symeon North in get Spun: The Step-By-Step Guide to Spinning Art Yarn (2010). The book has mixed reviews but I am enjoying looking through it and trying out some of the techniques she suggests. I haven't started spinning plastic bags yet but I liked the idea of spinning some strips of fabric, weaving them, then making a bag. I have a few balls of fabric left over from crocheting a rug. The small amount I succeeded in spinning gives me hope, but it wasn’t easy. Perhaps I need a jumbo flyer unit or a better technique or both.
Anyway, I am off sooth for a few days and hope to fit in a visit to one of my favourite stores Twist Fibre Craft , Newburgh, Fife. Love it. I suggest you visit their website www.twistfibrecraft.co.uk although you really need to be there to appreciate the atmosphere in the shop. Last time I visited I bought a drum carder. Perhaps this time I should leave my purse in the car. Oh hang on a minute, I’m not taking the car.
