An Added Thought

As my spinning teacher says, if we were in a hurry, we'd buy yarn, not spin it. But now that I'm getting the hang of spinning, I find it really relaxing, kind of meditative.

And I love that these are such age-old crafts. It's really beautiful to feel a part of a really, really looooong tradition of crafting and history.
