Ok....so although I took knitting with me to Michigan, I spent any free time I could for spinning and weaving. the weaving really took me by surprise and I'm pretty happy with the result. The spinning....well, it just relaxed me and I actually got a lot done. So, I wasn't sure about spinning in front of my brother and cousin because they're boys and actually they have to have a laugh about everything...so I could only imagine what the spinning would set off. It wasn't as I expected, actually it was just the opposite....as we were all (6 adults) sitting together and I was spinning...everyone was staring...everyone was mesmerized...including the boys.
I found that every time I sat down to spin, everyone stared and it got quiet. Ok...this goes right back to my theory of meditation spinning. I know it has that affect on me, but it also seems to have that affect on the observer. Everyone loved what I was doing. The comments (from my brother of course)....why don't you have a wheel yet (I was expecting....seriously, that's what you do in your free time, can't you just buy yarn).....and I think it's trying to escape (when the roving pulled apart)....that's it....seriously, that's it. I think it's interesting that my brother thinks I should get a wheel.
They were also interested in watching my weaving too. My brother even helped warp the loom with me. These are activities that I thought would draw many comments because of my obsession and all the fibre, but my family....my very cool family (boys included) loved what I was working on.
Kathy....well, let's just say the spinning had her in a trance. Perfect......
Ok...now I'm wondering if I can hypnotize someone? I'm wondering if I can help people quit smoking or diet? I'm wondering if I can just help people sleep better? I know I do. The possibilities......the infinite possibilities.
