BTF 029: Owning the Labels

In which I think about labels and how we should own them, have a very, very hard week on Master Spinner Level 3, regret some choices in spinning mohair for braiding in Level 2, knit more holes into my finger but still make some good knitting progress, and finish off a large section on the Tapestry. Thanks for listening!

    You *are* a knitter. And a spinner. And a writer. And many other things.

    You consider me a spinner, I think, I don’t have my levels, I don’t do tech spinning, but I make yarn. I’m a spinner.

    You consider me a knitter, I think, but I just learned colourwork a few weeks ago.

    And math? It’s hard. 🙂

    But you? You have many, many skills and you should see yourself through my eyes. 🙂

    Also, your wheel ratio … Double drive? There’s slippage on a DD wheel that can make the math weird. Maybe video yourself treadling at regular spinning speed and watch in slow motion playback to see, over ten wheel revolutions, what the ratio really is?

    You are all those things. I really enjoyed listening to your thoughts on labels and I think you’re bang that we don’t encourage amateurs to own their labels. I don’t think I’m a Gardener because I don’t know a lot and there are people very close to me that know much much more. But I am. I garden. I am a Gardener. Thanks for this. hugs.
