Episode 71: Intentionality
Welcome to new and returning viewers – I hope you enjoy the show. Thank you to our Patreon subscribers of the show for keeping the show on the air week after week. You make all of this possible!
This week, I chat about a couple of spins that I am intentionally spinning with my dominant hand forward, doing all of the work. This came about after a conversation with a friend about spinning intentionally and seeking to improve my skills. I have definitely found I am not even yet but it’s coming … albiet slowly! Because I really felt that I needed a break from spinning this week, I have been working on a sweater for Norah that I was able to finish in 3 days while visiting with friends. I am really pleased with the result and I hope you can forgive the break in regular programming for some commercial yarn and a really cute FO!
