Yesterday’s class was great fun, and everyone was making actual yarn within half an hour! We moved on quickly from park-and-draft and the new spinners were able to ply their yarn and start their next spindle-full.



It is awesome to watch a person’s face as they learn a new skill and feel that fantastic sense of achievement when they see the limp fluff turn into something bouncy and knit-able. It makes me remember just why I became a teacher in the first place.



This beginner’s class is running again in September, and Alice and I have scheduled more classes for later in the year, including a Mohair special, just in time for fleeces to arrive from the kiddies on the farm. Pop over to Socktopus to book your spot now.


With thanks to Alice - chief photographer!

    There’s nothing quite like it, is there? All those shiny new spinners unleashed onto an unsuspecting world……..
    What spindles do you use for teaching?

    Also don’t forget, we had a very good teacher! Thanks again for a fun class on Sunday. I’ve been showing my yarn off to anybody who appears even remotely interested …
