Well here it is! My first “skein” made by my drop spindle. Thank goodness the roving was beautifully dyed because that is the best compliment I can give my work. 😳
I know I am being hard on myself. I need to let my perfectionist ways go while trying to master this new skill. My spinning instructor has been super encouraging, which has been great. I have needed it. Spinning is WAY harder than I thought it would be. Talk about multitasking! You have to keep the spindle going while balancing the pull and release of the working yarn. It is a lot to remember all at one time. I am excited about the challenge, but spinning yarn is defiantly something I am going to have to practice, practice, practice. Wish me luck!
