For our anniversary, I told Mick to look on Etsy and buy me something he thought I’d like.  He bought me a handmade spindle and some wool, which was a very nice surprise:

Today I set out to spin a little.  Turns out it’s kind of hard!  Here is my first attempt at making yarn:

I have to admit I’m not very good at reading and then following directions, so this attempt was lame, at best.  I feel quite certain I wasn’t doing it right because it didn’t spin very smoothly.  That said, it looks more like yarn than it did when I started out.

I’ll have to keep practicing…
