Spinning the yarn

No, this isn’t a post about certain people spouting a load of BS about reasons for travel and expecting us to believe them.

Nope, this is truly about spinning yarn.
I had a friend whose mother used to spin her own knitting yarn from her dog’s shed fur.
The jumpers she knitted were beautiful, but cost effective? No, as each one equated to over 100 man hours to spin, let alone the availability of the fur in the first place.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Wow. That was some endeavor she undertook.

  2. Wow is right as to time consuming, thumbs up to her dedication. I took a wool spinning class a long time ago, it’s a pretty therapeutic process. Oddly enough when the pandemic started I had wished I had a spinning wheel and a bunch of raw wool, but I had neither.
