I’ve begun my first spinning for the New Year. This is some roving a friend gave me for practicing drop spinning. I did some of that, but I want to practice spinning a finer yarn on the wheel before I start into some gorgeous roving my sister gave me for my birthday.
I’m spinning it about as thin as I can get it without it breaking constantly so that it will still be fairly fine when I ply it.
I’m not sure what this roving is but it’s working very nicely. I think it might be merino.
And I promise to go back and do some drop spinning this year also. My wheel spinning has actually improved my drop spinning.
Someone has finally started an online quilt group similar to Ravelry and I got invited to be one of the testers. WhooHoo! I’ve already spent way too much time on it this morning. It’s looking very nice so far, and while it’s only by invitation now, I’m sure it will be open to others soon. I’ll post the link when it is.
