A week or so ago I posed the following question to my friend on Stitchin Fingers
So my question is, although many of you have tried many different fibre techniques, Is there one that you have never tried that keeps calling to you. You know, the one that gets you watching every time you see someone demonstrate it.
For me, it's seeing someone sat at a spinning wheel, my fingers itch to have a go. Closely followed by those big looms that bang and clang :-)
Spurred on by this, I had a rummage in my cupboard and found a drop spindle purchased in Scotland several years ago, played with once, failed to make anything that stayed together and promptly abandoned!
I then hunted down video clips on You Tube, adapted the method so that I used my bad arm as little as possible and played,and played, and played...................
So take one spindle
make some wonderful texture
eventually something that resembles wool
try again and again, eventually a little more control
thanks to my friends for replying, many of them also had ambition to spin-) Abigail, Hanane, Tatting Chic, Sita,Pam,Jenny,Helen Suzanne, Neki,Ati, Pippa and Margaret
So, what new craft would you like to try?
