It's Here!

Well, I received my spindle today.... we'll see how this spinning thing goes. :)

The fiber is really soft & pretty, Annie also sent along a couple of fiber samples, instructions, & a couple of treats.


The spindle is a pretty thing, and seems to spin good. Although I have no experience & nothing to compare it to.

I've pulled all of the fiber apart into smaller strips, my attempt at pre-drafting! LOL

And I've started spinning "something".... I'm not sure how much twist I'm supposed to have in this stuff, I am probably going to leave it as a single yarn. Don't think I'm quite ready to try plying yet! If anyone has any advice about what I'm supposed to be doing, please feel free to comment! :)


Here is what I've done so far.....

It looks great! Much nicer than what my first attempts looked like. :-) And the design on the spindle is lovely.

I hate you. ;) I've had that brief lesson, and yet, I'm the one with the spindle in the yard... Tune in after the bills go out for that story!
