Recently, I bought myself a spindle (I had fibre, my wheels were >1000km away...)
I'm not very good at it yet - the spindle drops with (admittedly, decreasing) frequency. My housemate T asked me why.
In the past, I think I may have come up with some great reasons.
Because I was trying to spin too fine a yarn for the spindle weight.
Because I was distracted by conversation.
The answer I gave?
Because I'm still a bit shit.
Maybe this is what self-awareness is.
Maybe I'm growing up.
