Success!

Published by at 10:20 am under Stash

So among the things I have been working on this summer is my spinning. I have a really adorable little Golding spindle that I picked up two Marylands ago that I have been getting more and more comfortable with, and ages and ages ago I started spinning up this bagful of fiber I got from a kind fellow Raveler who RAK’d it to me so I could have something to practice with.

This is what it looked like when I started:

Now, I’ve been messing around with my spindles for a while — I have this big generic one that I got cheap at Rhinebeck years ago, and it was just too heavy for me to spin comfortably with. It wasn’t until I picked up my Golding that things finally started falling into place.

And how.

Honest to goodness HANDSPUN

Say hello to 91 yards of roughly sport-weight, chain-plied YARN. Yarn that I spun, all by myself.

The skein is sitting next to me right now, because I can’t stop patting it and touching it. Guys, I can make yarn! This changes everything!

In fact, I’ve already started spinning more. As the internet would put it, MUST SPIN ALL THE FIBER. If you’ll excuse me, my spindle awaits.
