I Learned To Spin Yarn Today!

How fun spinning with a drop spindle is! And to think I had never even heard of a drop spindle before this week! Thank you Kathy. I am afraid I am going to be totally hooked on this new hobby. Well...Actually, I think I already am!! It is so fun. Although we didn't get very far in my first lesson, I learned how to use the drop spindle and I made a very small skein of yarn!
Here are a few photos of what the wool looks like plain white, and then a photo that includes the wool roving dyed, the small skein of yarn I MADE and the wood drop spindles Kathy gave me. VERY FUN. But kind of scary that I really might end up to be a SPIN...ster...:)
