I have been lurking on craftster for a while but tonight I happened across this board and it inspired me to finish plying my wool of my cd spindle. Bare with me, I dont know the terms or the names of the gadgets. I thought I would post a picture of the wool. I used a CD spindle then took it off onto some little gadget my grandpa made me that aloud me to double ply the one strand (I think some people use their hands to do this but when I tried my finger turned purple before I aborted that method).
This wool is some my father bought my mother for Christmas. There was 10 lbs of it so she sent it off to have it washed and when she got it back we were both a little overwhelmed at the size of the bag. In the end I got lucky and got a bunch of this nice roving. I can experiment now. I'm very new to spinning though (I happened across a free ashford wheel but still feel a little overwhelmed by it so I'm still working with the drop spindles.)http://gallery.thehaggertys.net/Christmas-Wool/000_0005_Medium?full=1
