My Kaira is fascinated with sheep, wool and spinning, and was excited to receive a drop spindle for Christmas. (Three cheers to the grandparents!)
The question is: Can I figure out the spindle? I’ve been reading websites and watching videos, but am still bewildered. Ken’s going to try to look at the gizmo this weekend. In general he’s better at high tech things of that nature–new inventions with the past several thousand years.
I’ve tentatively concluded that spinning wool into yarn is almost as magical as spinning straw into gold. If Ken can’t figure it out, perhaps some little man with a funny name will come knocking with advice? Naw, he’d want my first born in exchange, and it’s for the first born we are doing this to begin with.
So, what’s your vote? Can prairiefrogs spin wool into yarn?
