Vacation spinning

I recently got to spend time with some friends and each day we walked out in nature, a rare pleasure of mine. I have been having so much fun discussing the various plants and animals we get to see (Sandhills cranes! Whooping cranes! Wild turkeys!). To keep my hands occupied I take along my spinning, and I get a surprising amount done on my walks. This particular day I have been spinning white babydoll Southdown, and on the prior walks I have been spinning different colors, which will be combined into a hat and mitten set this winter.
I spin while walking often, and enjoy it very much. There are some tips and techniques which make it a little easier, and if you are interested I will be teaching classes on mobile spinning at the weavers guild of Minnesota this fall, , and at PlyAway this spring,
