Perfect evening.Another "batch" of apple mouse/jam is done.I got loads of apples from my friends' orchard.They are yummy.I did manage to spin a little bit as well during preparing those goodies.I was also catching up with listening to the second part of Stieg Larsson series😉.I told you perfect evening.
Let there be yarn! 🐑 I made some mistakes for sure, but it's not bad for my first ever round of spinning! I tried to spin for a 2 ply fingering. The red one, which I spun first, is a lot more thick and thin than the blue one, which I spun last. I think I might make some mittens or a hat out of this. 😁 .

birthday dropspindle made by @azureskyshandcrafts came in yesterday, and she is a beauty! #resin#whorl made with #glitter and dried flowers. the sample blue roving was included and also beautiful . the spindle is so freaken #magical and will be part of my Craft 😍
the green/blue roving is from #heavenlywools , based out of New Zealand. it is #hanui and merino i think.
Plying is so much fun! Especially when your fiber is variegated. 🌈 (Also, practice makes perfect! My spin was a lot more even on this last round and I got a pretty uniform 2 ply fingering out of it. 😁) .
Last night I took a drop spindle class at a local yarn shop in Bridgman and it took me 3 minutes to figure out now I am full blown obsessed. The sweet old lady teaching the class was just as pumped as I was about my spinning she gifted me four big bags of wool scraps. So if anyone needs me I’ll be spinning !!! Thumb ring by @pclasko
Does anyone "fudge it" when you don't have the right equipment? I wanted to do some spinning, but my only spindle has fibre on it already so I have bodged another one from a chopstick and a kid's threading bead!
