I didn’t write a post last night (I usually write them up the night before). I got home late and decided to spin flax instead. So here is a quickie drive-by of a post that I whipped up this morning.
I’ve finished my second mini-skein of flax and its washed and drying today. The first mini-skein is so bad it doesn’t qualify as yarn. That’s okay because I’m getting better and I’ve learned a lot about spinning flax already. But I still have more to learn.
The first thing I learned? Its messy! Flax-fuzz gets everywhere. Its worse than a shedding cat is that tells you anything. This stuff has to be spun with a towel on your lap.
That’s not a towel, by the way. Its my favorite skirt. Lesson learned.
