Zen and the art of watching Jessica and Nancy spindle-ing

I must still be a visual learner after all these years. I took wheel spinning lessons in the early 90’s and I can’t say that I am the best but I get a satifactory product out of my efforts. I’ve picked up a dozen books and on line lessons on how to drop spindle spin and get frustrated/mad etc. During Black Sheep I intently watched Jessica and Nancy spin, plus Jessica reminded me of the physics of spinning and voila!! Tonight I did pretty darn good for a rookie. I’ve been wanting to get good so I can spin at lunch.

Now to graduate past romney.

    Very nice – I have a spindle and can’t do much beyond dropping it….

    Yay, you!

    For some reason, about half the emails I try to send you bounce back. So if you didn’t get a response to your last comment or two, that’s why!
