The German proverb goes:
Spinnen am Morgen - Kummer und Sorgen,
Spinnen am Abend - erquickend und labend.

This means:
the activity to spin starting in the morning to earn ones living is a
hard work,
but spinning in the evening together with neighbours and chatting is fun.

This has nothing to do with spiders. :-)
