My first spinning class was this morning and I was expecting a group activity. What I ended up with was a private lesson with Sandy. The LYS, Purls of Wisdom in Parker is fairly new and since there are no other stores on the south end with much in the way of spinning supplies, Jen decided this would be her niche. She has lots of undyed and dyed roving and will soon carry spindles and wheels. I created (with help) a drop spindle using a dowel and 2 old cd's. Here is my first attempt:
Like everything, it is going to take lots of practice to get the hands,roving and spindle to work together to make a good usable yarn. What you see is 2 hours of work!!
