This is why spinning is a good thing.
+It makes you stop thinking 1000 thoughts all at once.
+You get a sense of achievement, after all, no one I actually know locally spins.
+You start really looking at yarn in a different way
+I like how I can admire the yarn I just spun as I am adding it to the spindle.
+People look at you really strange, if you do it in public, but everyone wants to ask you a question after watching for awhile
+You can take your spindle anywhere, well almost
+The creativity, spin thick or thin, or thick and thin. Ply odd stuff in, (see Pluckyfluff), dye it before or after, mix your fibers.....
+It's a challenge, especially in the beginning
+And it's fun
+When you are done and decide to knit it, knitting seems to go really FAST...
+I think it rocks the soul and lowers your blood pressure (I'm positive it must)
So get some fiber and a spindle, or like I did for years, get a book and read about
May you spindle fly as fast as dragonflies.
