How far will a person go who has no clue on anything to do with spinning?
She will buy 7 enormous bags of Alpaca fleece from her friend without even seeing it, not knowing that alpaca is one of the most trickiest fleeces to spin..and most definitely not for a beginner! tsk, tsk!
She will be up late, late at night when she should be tucked up cosily in bed, searching YouTube videos on primitive ways to spin because her heart is still palpatating since she discovered the price of spinning wheels.
She toys with the idea of using that alapca fleece..because that is what she has on hand. 7 bags full!
She stares into space and ponders deeply when loved ones ask "are you really going to spin on a chopstick?"
