The other day I looked around and realized I need to step back from knitting, for at least enough hours in a week to tidy up consistently and cook a few meals and get some exercise.

Then yesterday, I saw this.

This is not what I had in mind when I wrote 'some exercise'. I don't even own a spinning wheel, let alone bobbins. What I have is quite a bit of very nice roving I had already decided to use in Other Ways besides spinning it.

So, I'm not going to take a beginner's class in spinning every Saturday for a month in one of my very favourite yarn stores. However, I am going to want to.

I found learning to spin on a wheel much easier than on a drop spindle. I had my wheel almost 20 years before I finally learned to make nice yarn on the spindle. But I had a treadle sewing machine for many years, so treadling was the easy part.

I say go for it. But you knew I'd say that.
