Things I learned:
I feel much more confident in my spindle-spinning now, and not quite such a newbie! My only problem is that the other ladies in the class spent more time talking than learning, and, because my job all week is talk-intensive, I had a hard time joining in. I'm just concentrating on my fiber. Hope they didn't think I'm rude :) That sometimes happens at knit night, too!
Next week we get to move on to a spinning wheel, and I think I am going to drive there whether there is a winter storm or not :) (brave words for the midwest)
While there, I purchased two skeins of Socks that Rock midweight in the most awesome colors. Wow, 'fire on the mountain' is one of the prettiest yarns I've seen. I'll post a pic later :) What a nice yarny Saturday that was.
