Spinning
So anyone here spin? I never really had an interest (you know just one more hobby to spend on goddly amounts of money on!) BUT I watched an episode on Knitty Gritty... now me thinks it might be cool.

So now instead of buying piles of yarn, you can buy piles of rovings, and the spindle, and the wheel and the loom and the lessons, eventually the sheep, rabbits and alpacas. So each scarf should run you about, oh, $1500! :D

I know that is what I was thinking. I just looked to see how much a spinning wheel cost. Yeah sure they had spindles that you could make for virtually free - but why would I opt for that :rollseyes:

Of course not. It would have to be in a wood that matches the furniture, too!

I spin. But instead of spending $1000 on a wooden wheel, my dad is building one for me. I bought a Babe to learn on. It's a great wheel for not a lot of money!

You mean your dad can't make a spinning wheel either? Whew! I thought it was just me!
