That's why I'm convinced it's a rabbit hole I shouldn't go down… ;o

Beautiful wool and stitch marker are they available anywhere?

Liz Davey

A word of warning. It is addictive. My mother was a spinner in a group (my father used to call it Wheeltappers and Shunters). She made a hand-dyed, hand-spun, hand-knitted waistcoat for my son when he was about three, and it was beautiful. Then the childminder put it in a boil wash and felted it. All that love ruined by an unconsidered act. I still have it as a reminder to look after precious things

I don't think Deb (at Fondant Fibre) sells the stitch markers but she has included one, in different styles, with each of my orders. In addition to fibre she dyes yarn, and while there's none in her shop as I write, she does update her stock every few days, I think, so she may have some soon. I've got a couple of skeins of MCN sock yarn from her, and one is almost a complete pair of socks so I'll be posting about it shortly.

Oh no, that's terrible, Liz!
(Love your father's name for the group.)

It was a dreadful TV programme in the 70s!

Ah, I knew it would be addictive. Looks such fun, though. And the vocabulary - fuzzlings! Wonderful.

One point in spinning's favour is that it's very easy to pick up and put down, so you can do the odd minute or two whenever you get the chance.

B R Wombat

Oooh, don't tempt me. I've so many single socks awaiting partners. I must resist.

And soon you will have bags of wool awaiting spinning, and then you will decide it would be nice to try dyeing yourself, so more bags of wool, and fleece, and dyes, and so on. (Ask me how I know this.)But it is so nice to make yarn and carry it all the way through to a finished something. But there is less time for knitting and for reading. Although there are folks who can spin and read at the same time. I am not there yet.
