Yes!! Worldwide Spin in Public Day!

for more info go to

That's right! A day for everyone to spin!
(no not around in circles, although you can do that too if you want)

I don't know about the rest of you spinners but I can't wait.
Of course, since I've only been spinning for about..hmmmm....about a month and a half now, I have to make sure I don't actually drop my drop spindle!!

WWSIP Day 2009 Dates:
Worldwide Spin in Public Day is Saturday, September 19th, 2009 however if you are unable to attend a spin in public event on this date, we (the folks who started this) would like to extend the invitation to September 18th through September 20th, 2009.

The website (link above) also has info on hosting and/or finding a "sip".

I've been meaning to try this....making recycled Tshirt Yarn

pic found at

Hmmm...I wonder if I can consider this a form of spinning???
I mean, it is making your own "yarn".
Well, maynot....not spinning that is.
But it would be fun and really colorful.
Goodness knows it's easy enough to come by tshirts.
I really need to get on this. It just seems like there's always other stuff to do.
