Not too long ago, she shared about her alpacas getting sheared and all the lovely fleece. I left (another) comment of envy and mentioned that I had a dream of learning how to spin. I figured this would always be just a silly wish since I don't know anyone who has woolly critters or spins for themselves.
Shortly after I left that comment, I received an email from another Hoosier. Since I am "Hoosier Girl" on the blog, the writer assumed I lived in Indiana- AS DOES SHE- and she'd be happy to teach me to spin! WOW! It turned out that she lived about 40 minutes drive away, not just in the same state. NO!- IN THE SAME COUNTY!
So yesterday I had my very first spinning lesson. I was nervous at first but my teacher was wonderful and very patient. It was such a great experience! Y'all, I. MADE. YARN.
Thanks to a blogger in another country, one more dream has become a reality. It really is a small world! Stop by Loom Hall on Facebook to see all the neat things my spinning teacher does, too!
