Nine At One Time!

I'm feeling rather "Brave Little Tailor" about myself after this Saturday at the All MO Spin In because I taught my first class en masse, which for me was 9 people at a time. *No eating of jam or killing of giants was involved and I didn't end up marrying a princess, which is great news for Mr. Yarn Geek.*

I taught the class 3 times in a row. By the last time I was getting into a rhythm and thing started progressing nicely. This is a picture of the last class where all the "maybes" on the class form decided to show up at once and our little circle expanded.


The class was all about spinning what some call "Bubble Yarn". I just call it thick and thin, but the thick sections are extremely thick and the thin sections are pretty thin. We spent a goodly amount of the allotted thirty minutes going over the actual spinning technique and a few minutes at the end playing with the possibilities for mixing colors together while drafting.

It really was an intermediate spinning class, but it didn't stop a few really new spinners from signing up, and for the most part, they did well. I think the class was a success, but if I ever teach it again it would be nice to have an hour to teach it in. It would also have been great to have a less noisy area, but we all did the best we could and a lovely time was had by all.
