Between the beer, the music and the mud I learnt to spin!
Myself and the boyfriend were taught by a wonderful couple called Dave and Sarah who own a yarn, spinning and quilting shop near Bristol called Spinning Weal.
We tried out both wheel and drop spindle spinning, drank tea and ate cake.
Not rock and roll, but bloody marvellous.
The white ball is the boyfriend's and the one with more colouring is mine, they are made of wool from Sarah and Dave's Portlands with touches of blue and purple merino.If you live in the Bristol area I do recommend you check out Spinning Weal.
Dave and Sarah are in all seriousness two of the nicest people I have ever met, and so generous.
