Spinning Zen? Homily? Masterful slinging of ….

I was reading a Very Good description of the hand carding process (Handspinning, Art & Technique Allen Fannin 1970)
and I was struck by a chord. Yes, it was late, yes I was tired, but I think it merits some pondering…

Perhaps, when we are being yanked around in life, meshed, threshed and rolled; we are being carded…

Carefully prepared under tension to lay in an even and airy rolag then tenderly spun into glorious yarn destined for some lovely creation.

Or maybe not.

I hope we are destined to be lovely yarn, because being carded is a b*&^$. :-)

I'll agree!

That's a comforting comparison. I hope I'm destined for extra-loveliness because I currently feel like I'm being put through a picker! ;)
