Intro to the drop spindle
Thursday night at Starbucks, Lynn (who needs to update her blog) had her drop spindle and was spinning away. I was complaining at my lack of talent with the drop spindle and how I just couldn't do it. Amber had given me a pretty drop spindle for Christmas and it had been sitting there, after my first sad and pathetic attempt. Lynn had some great fiber to spin with and let me try it and well, it worked pretty nicely. Then, she showed me how to start it off and then I was anxious to go home to give it another shot. So, when I got home, it was already midnight. But I blogged, and then I tested out the spindle and success! Even better, it was with this blue fibery stuff that was driving me nuts! Two of my biggest fiber frustrations finally came together into something!
