Spinning

I'm making progress on the aran sweaters. The largest one (size 6) is done, minus seaming the sleeves and sides. The back and front are done of the middle sized one, and the sleeves have been cast on. Since it's the same exact photo as before, and I have nothing else to show, I thought I'd show you a video of "how I spin". Tamara has seen it and asked what technique it was, and I have no clue. It works for me, that's all I can say. In it, I'm spinning up the Sno Cone roving.

Video is here.

I want to spin today... I've wanted to spin all weekend. :( I need to quit my day job. Keep spinning Karen!

WooHoo! Karen spinning! You are fast, fast, fast.

I'd much rather have a endless spinning video on the TV than the Yule log. Can you make that happen? lol It is mesmerizing...

Man you make that look so easy...I'm still trying to figure out how to use a top whirl.

Wow! Thanks for sharing with us! As I play with my wheel, I'm wondering if I'm doing anything like what I'm supposed to. You are super quick!

That is just too cool! Nice to see it close up like that and sideways. Most times I see people spin I am facing them so I can't see exactly what their hands do.

Thanks! :)

*man..I wanna spin...must resist ;)

Aw, that's cute! Reminds me of a red sweater I had growing up. Every girl needs a good red cardigan.

And of course--love the dead butterfly bush! Want some butterflies? We're on batch three down here! Not enough predators lived thru the drought so they're everywhere!

Oh DEAR GOD! I SUCK! I had Elizabeth's blog open and was commenting on it and then I was going to comment on yours. I am so EMBARRASSED!!!

Ok, but what I was REALLY going to say: I like your method! It works. I've only ever seen Ana spin, I want to say it was close to that in and out movement you did.
