So, I just finished spinning my first single:
It's sort of thick-and-thin (still haven't gotten the hang of drafting evenly
), but oh well. I'm thinking of plying it with this other single I'm spinning now:
(That one's even thicker-and-thinner, I think)
Do they look okay for a total n00b? (I know the pics are kinda iffy, but it's the best my iphone could do).
The white was spun on a bottom-whorl spindle, and the purple/pink one is being spun on a top-whorl spindle. Right now, I'm liking the bottom whorl better: it doesn't wobble as much, and the top-whorl doesn't have a notch so I'm having a hard time getting the yarn to stay where I want it.
I'm considering making a notch on the top whorl, but I'm afraid I'll ruin my pretty spindle. Hee hee.
I was inspired to give spinning another try (the first one, a few years ago, failed miserably) thanks to the spinning tutorial in this forum.
I only wish the class had gone on to plying!
