Spinning… more like Trying to spin

Posted by allie on December 21, 2006

I was introduced to the art of Spinning yesterday (something I’ve been meaning to do for ages.) My boyfriend’s friend’s mother used to teach Beginning Spinning classes and offered to help me learn ages ago. She gave me some brown merino and white long hair roving plus a spindle. I have spun all of the white, but the “tension” (I don’t know Spinning terms yet) is way off and I am continually screwing it up royally. I hope to be able to spin yarn for myself to knit with, eventually. This current batch, however, has very little to offer.

This picture makes it look a little better than it actually is, but I’m still learning. Anyway, hoping to have some decent yarn next time I give it a spin.

    Save that yarn! You will treasure it later when you can’t spin that way any longer. grin
