|my hand spun yarn!|
I was never going to spin yarn because I always said I could just buy yarn all ready made. And then I bought a drop spindle and spun these...
and then I had to have a wheel...
This is a Louet Victoria I purchased from one of Missoula's local yarn stores. She is petite, folds up so nicely, and is wonderful to spin on!! I always thought spinning wheels were heavy and immovable, but not so.
My first yarn spun on my wheel!
This one I started on the drop spindle and finished on the wheel. I over plied it, but I still think it's my best spinning yet!
I. Love. Spinning. So much. Each time I improve and learn something. I just cast on with some of my hand spun, a bunny nugget:
and it is so cool to knit with it! One of the coolest things :)
I also said I would never own a Kindle (love mine), never knit a sweater (in progress, but am loving it and have purchased a quantity of MadTosh for an Abalone), never knit socks (well, you know how that one's going) ....
my updated list of nevers is, I will never knit color work socks or a fingering weight cardigan ;)
Happy Weekend friends!!!!!
