It’s already been broughten!

Before I had piles of fluff and empty bottles filled with hand spindling (dirty, no?)

Now, I’ve got skeins, and skeins of yarn waiting to be baptized in the bathtub and dried-I’ve been told this sets the twist. I’m starting to think the real spinners are making this crap up to see if I will do whatever they tell me.

It’s snowing, and freezing, I’m going to end up with soggy frozen yarn draped around the house.

I say:

Bring it on.

  1. Fun, fun, fun! I wound my skeins right before we left for Thanksgiving! I picked out a pattern, needles and am ready to knit myself a handspun scarf!

  2. Don’t forget after you gently dip your skein into the water to stand on one foot, spin around 3x in a counterclockwise direction and recite “twinkle twinkle, little star”. This is the secret that is rarely spoken of that sets the twist properly so it won’t unravel. Alice taught me this so I’d get it right.Your Helpful Dad

  3. Man, I didn’t know that. I just loop mine over plastic coat hangers and put a washcloth at the bottom of the loop to catch the drips. Hanging them from the shower curtain rail thingy helps, but they still can make a mess on the floor next to the tub.
