1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Newbie in need of help! on: January 19, 2009 04:11:36 PM
Alright, so I just bought my drop spindle, and I have some roving to work with, AND I've read everything, watched every video possible. I feel like I am ready to start, lol

BUT everyone seems to be spinning very thin diameter yarns. what I was looking to create was a REALLY fat yarn, almost like I was crocheting with the roving I got. For some examples, please see these pictures:

I assume this kind of fat yarn would take more per pound of roving, and that's fine with me, but is it even possible a) at all and b) on a drop spindle? Would it be really hard? Should I try something else for my first yarn, or do you have any tips to help me get this kind of yarn?

thank you so much in advance!
