I was rather taken with the idea of spinning my own yarn, so bought a drop spindle and some merino tops to have a go!These were my purchases from the show.I found a book on spinning in my vast collection of books, and after a spot of reading, took the plunge, and had a go!
I was quite impressed with my first attempt, and with a bit of practice I am sure it will get easier.
I have included a photo of my first yarn! Any hints and tips for improvement gratefully received!
I really enjoyed making this yarn, so much so that I have now booked myself onto a course in July to learn to spin with a spinning wheel!
This lovely lady was also at the show! I had a fantastic time, and feel really inspired. I will definitely be going again next year!
