First spinning lesson....

So there it is! The first product of my drop spindle! Not half bad. I enjoyed it, liked feeling the wool between my fingers and couldn't stop myself playing with it a bit. Can't remember what wool I used for the grey...but on the spindle....
is Blue Faced Leicester (BFL). (Isn't that cute???) I actually had some more help with the BFL because I was wearing out...and didn't realize it. I was enjoying it so much, I didn't realize we had been going at it for a couple of hours. They just flew. My right hand, which gives me more problems then the other, hurts tonight. I will have another go though, and more tomorrow...and more...well you get the idea.

Thanks so much Julia for all your kindness and help. I really enjoyed my day and will continue to spin my way through the wool you kindly gave me!

I started packing my crafts for the vacation (no clothes yet....not even books yet!) I've got a clear box that is quite large and everything is going in there. If I can't fit it in...it ain't going...to bad sewing machine!! I've contacted a yarn shop in Norwich though that does some workshops and I will have a go there.

Looks great! My first attempt at spinning was a little more "rustic" than yours. ;-)

Ooh, spinning. Looks good! The Twisted Sisters Sock Book is my loo book this week; I must find time to stop thinking and start doing!
