Due to the plethora of shawls I'm making as of late, I've been doing a lot more knitting lately, which has got me thinking about spinning my own yarn. I think it started with this "beginning spinning part 2" video from Sue Macniven, and snowballed from there. I've got a bit too many projects on my hands to start a new hobby, so for now, I will live vicariously through other spinners.
For those of you who are interested in spinning your own yarn, or want to just watch from the sidelines, here are some resources:
Here is a video from Megan about how to spin yarn on a drop spindle. She has oodles more tutorial videos on spinning on her site, so make sure to check them out.
Vera Videnovich offers weekly spinning wheel rental (for only $10!) and spinning classes. I read elsewhere that she has a sheep share program, but could only find her produce share on the website.
Interested in "owning" your own sheep but don't have the land or time? Perhaps you should try a CSA/Sheep Share program:
Foxfire Fiber - Now taking reservations for their 2011 sheep share
Local Harvest is a great resource for finding all types of CSAs
Vermont Grand View Farm offers both roving and yarn shares
Please comment if you know of any other wool/roving/yarn shares or CSAs!
