What I love about Ravelry
  • The community
  • The patterns
  • The organization of needles, patterns, projects, yarn
My brief encounter with Spinning this week at my LYS (local yarn shoppe), Shall We Knit?.  We talk about the best type of fiber to use to learn to drop spindle and the types of drop spindles they have available for purchase

While discussing Spinning with Jenn at Shall We Knit? she mentioned the book, Respect the Spindle by Abby Franquemont.  This I've heard is a great book to help with the learning curve of Drop Spindling!
