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…
