Arriving home from work, I ran into the bathroom to discover my yarn still drying in the same spot I left it. phew. Looky-Looky...I got a hanky.
It's not plied right, but if you like the hooky handmade look of it...it's not bad. Hell, I didn't expect much from my first go but I love it anyway.
Well, you know once I saw that hank, I couldn't resist spinning some more. Especially since I've had roving stuck in the back of my closet for, oh lets say 4 months...and look a full bobbin and a start of another. This took me, roughly an hour and a half...the hang up was little Mac. She didn't care for me spinning away...she would tell me "Stop Mommy! Stop Mommy!" - not sure why, but every time she said it, I would stop. "Do you want to snuggle?" "Yes Mommy!" - and so we would snuggle on the couch watching Thomas the Train on the (COMPLETELY AWESOME - SAVE MY LIFE) On Demand.
I still have tons of roving to go through...
This Shetland Wool is a dream to spin and slips through my fingers easily. My only issue now is figuring out the yardage of my handspuns. I know they have gadgets out there...Any suggestions?
