Intuitive Spinning with Jillian Moreno
If you don't like technical spinning or stopping to do a lot of measuring, you can still get the yarn you want for a project or a yarn that you dream about. Intuitive spinning relies on the look and feel of a yarn while you're spinning rather than the measurements. In this class, we'll explore the intuitive style of spinning for drafting and plying. You'll learn how to use your eyes, hands, and a few guidelines to get the yarn you want. We'll spin yarns of different sizes and styles, and learn to keep a yarn consistent without measuring. We'll discuss exactly when and what to measure when you're spinning for a project (hint: it's not much). Please come with a yarn in mind to spin. PLEASE NOTE: There is a materials fee of $20 for this class, payable to the instructor.
