For my birthday about a month ago, my aunt gave me an old spinning wheel of hers. I was worried that it would be hard to get the hang of, but it only took me a few hours.
Here are the yarns:
^Boucle! The first time I made it, and I just love how it turned out. I used roving that I had dyed with food coloring.
^Just a single, but I dyed it with koolaid (lemonade and something else)
this was the first yarn on my wheel. Dyed the roving and then the yarn with food coloring.
^Dyed with purple koolaid. I used my own jam-jar method (which I set in the sun to set the dye)
^Very loosely plied, from pink roving and purple roving.
^The first time I plied, made from roving I dyed
^This was actually all done on a drop spindle, before I got my wheel. It is very thin. I love it when people do pictures with coins to show scale, so I had to do one:
I've made a few skeins since, but I haven't taken any pictures yet. Thanks so much for looking, and I would love any comments or suggestions.
