Not that I need another hobby (but it’s related to knitting), I was encouraged by the KnitPicks Community members to try it out . . . So I purchased a drop spindle and some roving and started making yarn!!! Whaat? Yea – making yarn. It’s so fun. I have to admit I have dropped the spindle many times (8 to be exact) but have made progress.
The top photo is my second ‘test’ batch that I spun, set the twist and dried. It’s lovely! The bottom photo is my first attempt on the whorl. I tried dyeing the yarn from test batch #1 and am still experimenting, so I don’t have a picture yet. FUN weekend of yarn!
