Why I Need to Learn to Spin

This is why.

Seriously, how cool is that? The only runic inscription of its time, on a spindle--a mark of ownership!

This is what I like about knitting. Even if it is just a hobby to me, once it was very important. I feel linked to others when I am knitting, others going back so far into the runic inscriptions.

I will spin someday. I will, I will.

(Because I need another hobby. I'm going to be single forever.)

(Oh, and thanks to knittyBlog's "What's What Wednesday" for finding this article...lots of interesting stuff there.)

How cool!!!!
Elizabeth Goudge says one cannot spin without singing.
It is remarkable to be connected through women's work that far back into antiquity.
