My First Spinning Experience


I had resisted the urge to try and spin yarn, but upon a trip to the Connecticut Sheep & Wool Festival last April 2008, my new friend Mary urged to me give it a "whorl." (Couldn't resist the pun). Well, now I am hooked and here is the first and second spinning projects for me. The blue and purple is roving that came with the beginner spindle kit. It came with a short five minute tutorial from the lady selling it. The "cotton candy" color is a soy-silk/merino blend which was purchased at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival which took place in Rhinebeck, NY last October 2008. There will definately be more pictures to come, as I have more roving of different colors and fibers to spin. Stay tuned.
