On Thursday night, I attended the Windy City HandSpinning Guild for the first time and got a few pointers on my drop spindling technique. I met some really nice people, including a spinner who knows one of the other band members of Donnybrook. She fiddles as well with a band called The Crossing. That's the great thing about Irish music in Chicago; you're always bumping into someone you've never met before that plays the music. Anyways, my singles look a lot better than they did, so I'm thrilled! Hopefully, I will go back soon.
I'll just keep spinning what I have so far. My wife is making a scarfy thing out of scraps and what I spin. I'll upload a picture when it's complete.
