That's the only way to go right now, it seems: week by week.
Last week brought Younger Daughter's school's spring concert. This year they tried something different and did a musical - Seussical, actually (or, to be precise, Seussical Lite; this makes sense, as they make a point of including even the very very little kids in the spring concert). Younger Daughter was a Bird Girl.
The first spinning class went well last week (I think). By the end of the class, all of the students were making yarn using the park and draft method. And one of them had even progressed to trying to draft while the spindle was dangling and spinning; she did pretty darned well, even if she did learn first-hand one of the reasons why the name 'drop spindle' makes so much sense. We're meeting again tonight for the second half of the class, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how everyone did over the week.
The goal of tonight's class is to learn about plying. To that end, I decided to show them several different possibilities for plying spindle-spun yarn.
All of the spindle time (every bit of that yarn was spun between last week's class and last night, on top of all of the usual stuff that goes along with having out-of-town visitors - we went to the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA, btw, and if you like Tim Burton and live within reach, it's a pretty nifty thing to see! - preparing for Younger Daughter's birthday yesterday, and for Rick's birthday and Father's Day this weekend) means that my poor wheel has been banished to a corner.
