A new obsession?

Last week a dear yarnie friend of mine (aren’t they the best kind? 😍) invited me over for a spinning lesson! I was so excited! I had fairytale visions and (for some reason!) imagined that I would instantly be good at it and it would be super relaxing.. Boy was I wrong?!


Think patting your head and rubbing your belly at the same time! I was subconsciously scared to release too much precious fibre.. And the ‘twist’ was catching me.. A lot!

Also the ‘dead spot’ (where the wheel stops turning) kept catching me.. Especially if I tried to hold a conversation at the same time.. What a fool I was! 😜

And then when I got it turning again I would go anti clockwise for a wee while first.. Just to make things really hard for myself!

But in those (few!) wee moments when everything was doing what it was supposed to.. At the right time.. I glimpsed those fairytale visions again! 😃



I had an awesome teacher! She started out teaching me the mechanics of the wheel so I could see/ fix problems as they arose, which was very handy!

She let me battle on, lending encouragement and only jumped in when I was in a real (literal!) tangle!!

So by the time it came to plying(?) I had improved alot! And then I got to spin anti clockwise!! Woohoo! 😉
All in all I had a wonderful first spinning lesson so thank you @nearlythere… For the new obsession… You rock!! 😘
