Always learning, or at least trying

It's all about the process, not production. At least that's what I've been telling myself this week. I changed my wheel to double drive and feel like I'm learning to spin all over again. I'm just not consistent yet in double drive. I don't know why I feel like I need to learn double drive, but since my wheel does it I should know how. I've been spinning yards and yards of brown corridale, so I got bored and thought I should try to learn to use my spindle. The spindle is fun and portable, now I can take it along and spin on my spring trip to Washington DC!

Since I've been spinning and practicing on all that beautiful natural colored Corridale and BFL I rewarded myself . I love fiber from Sunset Fiber and bought 2 pounds to dye and a couple of colorways. I also found a new fiber source on Etsy, Freckle Face Fibers. My next goal is to be productive and spin some yarn I will use.

Good work Cathy. I am glad you are working on your spinning. I do really enjoy working on mine. We are going to try to get together to work on this together, right? xo J
