I'm Spinning Around

Before you get carried away with images of Kylie and indecently tight, gold hot pants, let me point out that I spin to quite a different tune. My style of spinning involves strips of fabric, a knitting needle and never getting bored by performing mindlessly repetitive tasks. I do it while watching television, although, on occasion, I have been known to sing (badly) appropriately themed tunes…Twisting the Night Away, You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)–the list goes on and on!

Too small to sew with,
too good to throw away.

So, twist them into
a single strip… 
and I get homemade yarn!
3 balls and counting…

It's a great way to use up scrap fabric, and makes me feel productive, when really I'm just twiddling my thumbs (and fingers).



  1. Good recycling idea for strips. How do you make use of small snippets of fabric?
    Keep spinning! And singing!

  2. I can do this for you - I am good at spinning scraps. I like anything that is soft and chewy.


Comment away, I'd love to hear from you!
