First, I took the bobbin off that I had been working on and put a new bobbin on. it took me a while to get it going after that. I’m still a very beginner spinner.
We sat for a while and worked our feet, each using a different wheel.
She had her hair pulled back in a pony tail so don’t ask me how she managed to get some of her hair caught in the spinning wheel. She was kinda hunched over the wheel, picking something out of it and I asked her what she was doing. She said “Do I have a bald spot right here?” It had yanked out 5 or 6 hairs, which looked like a lot of hair all wrapped between the orifice and the flyer, but I couldn’t see where there was missing hair on her head. I’ll bet that never happens again.
Today we’re going to try just adding already spun (storebought leftovers) yarn to the bobbin, which should be way easier than drafting the usual spinning fiber.
She brought her bicycle, which, except for it being overcast and cold, would probably be what she’d rather do than sit and spin but sitting and spinning isn’t a bad thing to do on a cold, cloudy day!
She’s already told me that she’s probably spending the night with a friend next weekend and she won’t be seeing me. “Granny, you don’t get to have me EVERY weekend!” I told her that I want her to do whatever she wants to do and I’m happy whenever I do get to see her but I’m even happier to know she’s having fun with a friend.
