It has been a while since I blogged, but I have good reason…. ever tried spinning your own yarn? If you have, then you know what I’m talking about when I say that it is VERY addictive…. hard to put down. You just want to keep spinning and spinning and spinning and….. hey, you get the idea!
While on my knitting retreat, a helpful fellow knitter/spinner graciously offered to show me how to spin using a drop spindle. Little did I know what I was getting into. A whole new world of fun is now open to me, experimenting with different types of roving, seeing what spinning in different directions does to your finished work, finding the right amount of twist for your yarn, etc. And that is just touching the surface of new and exciting things to try!
Here are some pics of my new adventures into the world of spinning:
If there are any fellow spinners reading this that have any great ideas for me to try out, please feel free to leave a reply and let me know all about it… I’m very curious!
