Why do I love spinning?  I ask myself this question a lot, and the only answer I come up with is that the slowness of it, the feel of the fibre and the rhythmic movement all add up to a wonderfully relaxing and calming pastime.  It certainly doesn't make sense in any financial or productive terms - but spinning somehow enables me to tap in to the history of women through the ages who have sat at their wheels.  I guess weaving has a similar effect on people but spinning does it for me!
