I'm finding spinning and hooking a happy mix.
Needing snow for my Journal I spun up flax ,wool and casserole dyed silk for one batch of snow and I also wanted some sparkly snow so I combined flax ( mine is ULTRA white) , wool and a multicoloured sparkly thread which I used chopped up and drafted in as a run along thread as well. The other wools are waiting to become ---- and lovely violet sky with a moon.
I also found a use for most of my beginner spinning from the first week of learning.
Somebody's gonna get teased I think.
It is both fascinating to look and at and revolting at the same time, the hat I mean, not the model!
