The Brighton Spinning Group continues to meet each Friday afternoon at The Green Centre in Manor Road in East Brighton. We have two spinning wheels and a number of drop spindles and although we're a self-help group, there is usually someone around who can show newcomers the basics of spinning.
It was sunny enough for us to spin and felt in the garden as the young ones played happily.
And do you remember that last week Alix and I helped Karen to learn the basics of using a spinning wheel? Not only has she cracked spinning AND plying, but already has knitted up a square for the blanket for the portable shepherd's hut being built at Stanmer..
This is Karen's square knitted with her first ever handspun (on the right) with Alix's Jacob's square and drop spindle.
