I thought I would update you on how things have been going with the spinning. There was a small attempt at using the spindle that resulted in a lot of swearing and frustration. Most people on Twitter advised me to try different methods to help me slow down but the problem was I couldn't get started! I just didn't seem to be able to get the fibre to spin. A little investigation with my friend who can use the spindle taught me that BFL it is a downside easier to spin and Falkland Merino. Lesson learned.
The same friend also brought round a beautiful spinning wheel, The Ladybug and I have been delighting in learning how to spin on a wheel. It is completely hypnotic and I might be addicted already. I can't wait to get to the point where I can ply my efforts so far.
What do you think?
