As much as I don't mind the rain usually, that paired with darkness every nite now by the time I get home...and let alone being extremely exhausted to do much of anything coherently this week, I have finally have something to share!
My First "real" handspun. I've done a few practice runs, and even my skein from my lesson at SAFF, but this was the first one where I bought the roving, learned how to divide/prepare for spinning and of course, spin it.
I have to admit after my class I was discouraged. The fiber we were given was not easy to separate and work with. So Shannon told me to go forth and purchase some BFL and we'd prepare and start spinning on Friday nite.
She was patient and showed my how to prepare, etc. and spinning progressed. It went a lot easier than my class.
Dark and mysterious....
Interesting array of twists huh? BTW, I just realized I haven't "set" the twist...going to do that tomorrow before it all twists apart.
See, I can haz my own laceweight! By mistake of course ;)
Sunning itself on some holly leaves...
See what an overachiever! You have lace, DK, worsted and chunky weight all in one!
In all it's finished glory...
And how it started that fateful Friday evening...
