it seems a lot of knitters learn to spin. i think it would be super wonderful (how do you like that syntax??) to learn to spin. seeing as how my dh has a hard enough time understanding the need for a stash, i dont think buying a wheel is in my future unless i figure a way to do it through donations like julie did. so a spindle is the way i am going to go (for now).
through searching online for local farms, i found mountain morning farm, which isnt too far rom me at all. she raises Romney/Romaldale/CVM sheep, and spins yarn and sells roving too!! i think i am going to get a drop spindle, and head on down the slippery slope towards a wheel.
shhhhh, dont tell my dh!
