I twiddle threads. I have been known to macrame, crochet doilies, do needlepoint and x-stitch, and crewel work. I sew and do machine embroidery. I have not tried spinning or weaving. While I am intrigued by spinning, my yarn stash is already quite large. The equipment required for weaving would take up more space than I have available.
Weaving would use a lot of the various threads and yarns I already have on hand. I have seen some beautiful woven pieces. I would love to have the skills to create similar things.
But, as with so many things, it boils down to money. Money invested in sewing machines (yes I have more than 1). Money invested in books, patterns, yarns, threads and fabric. Money invested in knitting needles. crochet hooks, and various sewing tools.
I have the added problem that I have not been able to work for a couple of years. When I got my nursing degree in 1992 we thought I would have 20-25 years of financial productivity. That obviously is not going as planned.
There should be a way to use all my twiddling experience and skills to generate an income. I don’t know what that is today, maybe I will know tomorrow. Or the tomorrow after that.
