in spinning news

I have decided to post up my first drop spindle efforts, Laura's is much better looking than mine on her pretty new wheel....

This is a little of my very first attempts before i completely figured out drafting and the park method.


then this still a spin in progress on my Bosworth after I starting to figure out drafting a little more consistantly....



should of done the penny thing, but hindsite being what it is, next batch I take pics of I will.

Still have over a pound of roving to work with so.... Trying to do at least 15-20mins a day to keep up practice and get better.

It looks great! Mine was worse than that when I started... ;) Oh and most people use quarters, but I don't do it either. Can never find one!

Oustanding! Be sure to make something, anything out of your first yarn. A potholder, whatever. You will soon be an accomplished spinner, and you'll never be able to make beginner-style "novelty" yarn again. Be proud!
