Let's see ... the longest I went without spinning? the first 35 years of my life! what a loss! Well ha ha anyway. There was a huge time when there just wasn't time or a place to spin or an easy way to get to my spinning stuff while we were building our new house and then moving into it -- probably about 6 months without much spinning, at least 4 months with absolutely no spinning whatsoever, and hardly any knitting as well! It was such a relief the evening I set up my wheel, pulled out my spindles, and picked some projects to return to.

Thank goodness that time is now past and fading from my memory!
