Well, I did it! I actually did some spinning last night. And, what's more, I really loved it. Infact, while I was spinning, I kept wondering why I hadn't done it before! Never mind, I'm sure that there will be no stopping me now! A whole new stash world awaits me! I've spun up half the fibre so far, and when I've spun the rest, I'm going to ply it together. Yes, there are thick bits and thin bits, overspun bits and underspun bits. It's what you might call a 'character' yarn, or 'arty' yarn I think! I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself nonetheless!
I must just show you what proper spinners can do though! Last week I received a lovely parcel in the post. I'd taken part in a giveaway on Minniemoll's blog, and I was lucky enough to win a beautiful scarf. Helen had spun the yarn herself, before knitting it up, but as she says in her blog, she wasn't feeling the 'lurve' for it. Lucky me, is all I can say, and it gives me something to aspire to with my spinning!
