Meet my new assistant

Thursday, November 10, 2016  Something wonderful happened this week. My grandson was helping me skirt some fleeces, and he got a little bored with that, and I saw him twisting some of the good stuff just for fun. Ummm, hello?  Kiddo, do you know what you are doing?  Twisting fiber is actually making yarn!!! So I ran and got him a drop spindle and after a brief lesson he spun yarn!  He kept saying “I really am making yarn!”  A perfect teachable moment. 

Photo of the day: Why not twist some fibers together, right? Look Yaya, they stick together!twistHe picked some very colorful roving and continued twisting – he made yarn!yarn-makerI think I have myself a new assistant!  😉first-yarn
