Spin Class at The Rookery

Kathy Eagle has been teaching spinning at the Rookery every Saturday for the past 5 weeks. I dropped in for the last spin class to share my yarns and hopefully inspire new spinners to view spinning a little more creatively. They were covering novelty yarn techniques. These two young spinners are already off to an amazing start. I LOVE these yarns!!!You don't get any more free form than this... truely. I almost always have my yarn planned out before hand- so its hard for me to look at that as being free form spinning. This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to knit. I'm not much of a knitter- for me the yarn I spin is more often the end result- but this stuff has my fingers itching to make hats, bags, whatever... I just want to knit it!
