Right round like a record, baby
Right round round round...

Well I finally succombed to the peer pressure... I learned to spin!
Amie taught me and Sarah how to use a drop spindle on Sunday and yes... it's true.... I loved it!
I am not going to show you my first attempts at spinning - the "yarn" I produced was a pretty crappy thick and thin mess.... although - I will keep it forever as my first hand spun!
You can check out Amie's blog for pics of me wearing the "dunce sheep" for dropping my spindle a few too many times!!
After an hour (or three) - I eventually got the hang of it and moved on to my own hand painted roving that I made at Mama E's class. I love how it's coming out! I think I may actually make something out of it!
I look forward to more spinning and maybe a big purchase in the future.....
