Is it worth it?
I'm a recent (and poor) college graduate who is trying to pay to take the GREs and submut grad school applications. Knitting keeps me sane, but it was a bloody expensive trade. I was thinking about starting to spin my own yarn in order to have my knits be truly homemade and save money. Upon scoping the internet, though, I find that fiber for spinning is almost just as expensive as pre-spun yarn. I want to be able to use the beautiful fibers that knitters with more spending cash me utilize.

Do you guys think it is worth it to try put the time and energy into learning to spin (drop spindle) and whether there are ways to procure fibers that are cheaper, even if they take a little more work and learning talents besides spinning and dying?

Thanks in advance for your help!
