I know what you mean...I neglect everything just to knit...once the spinning starts, well...

Definitely a precursor. :?

In fact, my dh and I had this conversation:

Me: I'm going to start spinning yarn!

dh: why? you can buy any yarn you want.

Me: well, I can buy a sweater at the store rather than knit one.
dh:

dh: but you can shape the stuff you knit to fit you.

Me: yeah, but if I spin and dye the yarn I can have creative control from the beginning.

dh: huh?

Me: It ends up being cheaper.

dh: Well then, that is a different story.

Nope...not a new craft

Hmm... I like the way you guys think and justify it. For right now I'm trying to figger out a way to get a swift and ball winder. Knitting is still a relatively new hobby for me, and DH is *just* getting used to me paying as much for wool as I used to for crochet thread! :thinking:

I, too, need to work in the swift and ball winder...once you find a good argument for them, please share! Though I've spent so much money on yarn in the last month that I think I'll hold off a wee bit on those...maybe until my birthday next month! :rofling:

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! Say that out loud and see how it sounds...I wonder what you DH was thinking?! The part that tickled me was "spin and dye"...someone could mistake that for "spin and die"!

I would love to see some stuff on spinning here! I think it would be great. I got an Ashford Kiwi for Christmas and I'm having so much fun spinning with it (when I'm not cursing at the quality of my yarn, that is).

I looked at wheels on ebay last night. I saw what might be considered good deals, but I must say that I'm so ignorant, I don't even know what a good deal is--Ven, if you want to help, that would be great.
