Want to kick back and listen to me muddle and fuddle up another classic tale? Good. Because I have another Spinning In Cowgirl Boots for ya.
Its a drag when you and all your brothers get turned into birds and your little sister has to save you with magical clothing.
Its an even bigger drag if you are the little sister.
The Struggle for Freedom Meant You Took to Your Spinning Wheel
Happy Birthday America. The freedoms enjoyed in this, my home country, were hard won as all freedom is. Today we hear cries of how freedom is under attack. Guess what? It always was and it always will be. The people who enjoy freedom must never forget that.
Today I’m plying two strands of undyed polwarth wool and telling The Tale of The Three Spinners (Die drei Spinnerinnen). The wool is from last year’s Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta in Sequin, Texas and the tale from from the Brothers Grimm. When I was buying it (the wool, not the fairy tale) I got swept up in the excitement of being at a fiber show and I did this: “I need 6 ounces of that polwarth. No 8 ounces. No ten!”
Now I have to spin up all ten ounces of it. This is me at my wheel. I look exactly like that.
