Yaay for spinning!

Let me know if you ever want to try working with filament silk yarn... :)

I'm sure I will. My partner has been working with silk. I expect to be taking an introductory silk spinning workshop at the Ontario Handspinning Seminar next month. I just looked up your video. Fascinating!

Envy, envy! A tangle of male spinners!

We're about to have the annual gathering of spinners in the North Bay. Each year about 120 or so spinners gather in a local vineyard on the back of the Russian River, to kibbitz and spin for the day. I'm lucky if 5 of us are male.

Look into the Men's Knitting Retreats. Besides the spring one in New York, there is one in July in Colorado and one in Washington at the end of August. Despite the name, spinners and weavers are also well represented.

Spinning can be (and often is) very meditative.
