Yarn fun

As you know, I have been playing with a drop spindle recently and I treated myself to this book with some of my Christmas money.



Most of the yarns in here are spun on a wheel and are illustrated with very clear diagrams. SO my next challenge is to master this....



On Saturday, my local spinner, dyers, weavers guild lent me this wheel to practice on.

PS I'm on holiday this week so I have time to play again!!!!

Oh, that looks like so much fun! Now I'm tempted to get out my drop spindle and learn how to use it!

Have fun with your challenge :-)

I got that book at Woolfest - it's fabulous isn't it - I love the yarns you're producing. I'm slowly teaching myself to use a drop spindle.
