This fall I was introduced to the art of spinning. When I put it like that most of you probably think I've meet someone IRL that showed me the ropes. That however, was not how it went down. I don't remember exactly how it went down but I think it was thanks to the Phat fiber group I've talked about in a previous post, Etsy sellers and their buyers. I wasen't about to plunge into it by buying a spinning wheel without even trying some spinning so I bought a nice affordable spindle kit from hilltopcloud at Etsy.
The kit included a spindle made out of a toy wheel and there was a good amount of fiber in it to keep me going for a while. I got kind of hooked, I enyojed the process but it took a while to get any result and so it got a little lost in the WIP pile. But my dream of making yarn was not forgotten. About 2 months ago I bought a lace spindle from Spinatude and was again hooked. I got the kind of yarn I wanted and even if the result was not even I thought that it was really nice for a new spinner.
