I am going to really recommend you pick up Judith McKenzie McCuin's spinning books. Start with her How To Spin book which will explain tons about basic spinning. And The Intentional Spinner is fantastic. I am still working my way through it.

I like the new yarn. Can we get your dad to do spindles? It is a start.


Thank you Mia! I am going to pick up some spinning books and I like your recommendations! Ohhhhhhh, spindles...yes, very good idea...thanks...I'll ask him!


I love the idea of doing a semi-solid with several colours. That would make totally cool socks, I think.

I second the idea of easing your Dad into the field with spindles. Smaller = less intimidating, maybe?


Thanks Sandy! Ya, spindles to start instead of a full wheel although knowing him he's probably going to jump right into the wheels...LOL He has a friend who carves table tops/doors and he was going to talk to him about it too.


I love the color of your sock. Looks like you have been busy with spinning & doing a great job.


Thanks Ann! Yes, lots of spinning these days...yay!


What a wonderful idea - to even ask your father to make custom carved spinning wheels! What a creative family. Enjoy your father while you have him.

Today (3/27) would have been my father's 89th birthday. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease when he was 50. It was have been even earlier - except back then, the doctors couldn't believe that someone that young could have that dreaded disease. Now, we know it's even so much younger. I feel that I really lost MY dad beginning then. He was such an intelligent, caring man and I still miss him.

I love your yarns. Keep them coming. Just so you know - I found you through Ravelry. Make all your endeavors bring you great blessings in every way.



Thank you Susan and so sorry on your Dad. I think it's important to cherish your parents for sure and appreciate your reminder to do that. Blessings to you too.
