Spinning Class

Yesterday I took a spinning class at the Threads and Fiber Festival, a new festival in Des Moines. I was very excited to take the class because I have not been able to figure out drafting.

The scheduled teacher was sick, so we were upgraded to a class from Kay at the Shepard’s Mill in Kansas. After three hours I can kind of spin. I know enough to know how to practice, which is what I intend to do daily.

Class wore me out. My whole body was sore, because I was so tense trying to learn a new skill. I had a headache. I had to cancel plans to grab a beer with Laura and her husband, which was disappointing. Hopefully we can catch up the next time she is in town.
