Presents, Prizes, Sweets and Surprises

Surprise, I’m a spinner! I got interested in spinning this winter when I saw Lynn’s huge shawl made of roving. Super-bulky yarn was just so expensive, so I decided to go to Etsy and buy some spinning supplies. I bought a kit and had a private lesson with Lynn, but my drop spindle didn’t really work, so when I saw she was giving a spinning class at YPS, I had to go!

Our lesson was Tuesday night, and just look what I made:

I made some yarn (top middle) and even started spinning more!  Now to get to all the other roving I couldn’t help but buy on Etsy…

    I bought roving from etsy too! I think I’m going to make thrummed mittens, I’m just not that interested in making yarn.

    Congratulations! You’re off to a great start. I’ve gotten back to the spinning, too, and I’m really pleased. The rhythm of the wheel feels so good.
