Just Joined

Hi, I have just joined too. I'm Hannah and I live in SE London, UK. I started spinning three weeks ago, when I got my first spindle. I have a book called Spinning in the Old Way, using a high whorl spindle, by Priscilla A Gibson-Roberts and now I am learning the names and techniques for what I am trying to do. Natalie's great tutorial with lots of colour photographs have really brought it to life and I now have a spindle with a growing cop of bumpy yarn on it. And more roving in the mail.......
I have a husband, three grown up children, four cats and a Giant African Land Snail. I like snails a lot. I hope to add pictures at some stage.

Hi Hannah. I think you are firmly addicted now. You'll be needing more spindles, and maybe even a wheel soon... :o)

Welcome! PG-R's book is really good for high-whorl spinning; you should do great!

Hi Hannah, Can't wait to see some pics of your yarns, and the Giant Snail.

Four cats! Ed totally approves.
