Ever since the Twisted Sisters book came out earlier this year, I’ve been resisting the spinning bug. The book features the most exquisite yarns. All were hand dyed and most were hand spun. Knitting projects already seem to take longer then anticipated. How could I also start spinning?
It must have been my destiny to spin. This summer a friend offered me a fleece! How could I pass up free wool? The spinning bug bit. So, now I’m learning how to spin. I already have three spindles, a niddy noddy and a nostepinne.
I find spinning much more challenging then knitting. I’m trying to get a consistent yarn but that seems nearly impossible. I’ve been practicing with a roving that I purchased from the local yarn store. When my skills improve, I’ll start spinning the fleece.
