imperfect is fine with me

I don't spin perfect yarn. I don't care to. I don't mind the bumps, I can buy perfect yarn. This is what I have been telling myself. But the truth is, in school often times the expectation is for perfection, even on the first try. Well, then, yarn is a place for my brain to relax and my hands to move. And it's more about making something than making something perfect. The bumpiest stubbiest overspun and underspun yarn is what is making me happy. And besides, they say once you go smooth, it's nearly impossible to go back, no matter how bad you want it. I can spin a pretty smooth singles, but why would I want to?
