jackson's arm. the project. part 2.
this is what greeted me when i arrived in jackson's arm this past week. rows of dyed and carded fleece ready to be spun. and a group of eager women ready to learn.
by the end of the 3rd day, the 4 or 5 women who persisted were spinning like pros and they'll now be able to teach the others who had spent more time carding and knitting.
and yes - i did teach plying...
and it wasn't all work. lots of tea breaks with deliscious homemade goodies
and lots of singing. and, when on the rare occassion. when everyone stopped talking and laughing, you could still hear margaret humming hyms. she found it helped her spinning...
