to spin…

last night i taught my second spinning class. i’m pretty excited to be back teaching something again, especially something i love.

in honor of all of the new spinners, here’s some of my first spinning

first colorful handspun

and what it became

handspun panta

it now belongs to my friend becca… and looks sooo much better on her.

here’s a post by one of my fabulous students from the first class! doesn’t her yarn look great? little tiny skeins of handspun make me happy. my friend sue also brought in the two little skeins she did to tuesday knitting group.

anyhow, because of spinning one being only two hours and some people wanting more support than that, i’m now teaching a spinning two class also! phew! suddenly i’m very very busy. plus the store is looking into having a spinning wheel sample to let people try and maybe stocking some spinning wheels? we’ll see! i’m also thinking of a knitting with your handspun class.

spinerly stuff in the mail too…

the whole family

the note that came with read:
When I discovered the $1 and .50 bins at open barn day at my friends’ farm, Liberty Ridge, I couldn’t resist picking up all these little balls of handspun for you.
Merry Christmas,

little ones

did i just say something about little skeins of handspun making me happy? i think i’ll go put them under the tree – thanks sarah! just a side note, sarah is one of my fiber friends for life. we took spinning lessons together in vancouver. she’s also an amazing producer of handspun, handknit garments. check out her flickr here if you’d like some serious inspiration. she’s a brilliant craftswoman.

  1. and may I add that it is one of my FAVORITE things! I wear it multiple times a weeK – I’m not sure I would survive without it! Love your blog Cosy – keep up the amazing work.

  2. Cosy… when are you going to teach another spinning class at the store? I had to miss the first two because of a death in the family.
