Spinning Resources

This post is meant to be a resource post full of links to articles, books, videos and discussions I've found helpful or that people far ahead of me in their spinning journey have recommended. Some of the skills and techniques I've listed here are things that are still way over my head, some I'm getting ready to tackle. But I wanted to build a list of reference that might be helpful in my learning process. This list is very much in progress and I will be adding to it over the coming weeks and months as I find more resources.

This list is in NO WAY comprehensive. I've been spinning for just 5 months as of this writing (7/29/2013) and just beginning to find my way through this fascinating topic, though I hope to learn it as deeply as I have/am learning to knit.

Nothing is listed in order of helpfulness or in any special order. Mostly I put things in alphabetical order, or in the order I discovered the resources. Amazon links are affiliate links- if you should happen to make a purchase through Amazon starting from this site you provide me with a bit of help in purchasing books to reinforce my knitting and spinning habits and possibly provide some homeschooling resources for our family.

Please feel free to suggest resources you feel are helpful for others so I can add them to the list!
