You have NO IDEA how excited I am to finally be able to post here. I got tired of waiting to buy a pre-made spindle from Etsy, so I went to hobby lobby and picked up all the stuff I needed to make my own. (Precut dowel rod, predrilled round thingy [lol], cup hook, and wool for needle felting.)
The wool is kind of blah and the only good thing about it is the wide variety of colors, but it'll do for practicing until I get better with spinning. ANYWAY!http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3271/2635936464_eeb1553df2.jpg
The teal and blue is spun with alternating strands of the colors, and then plied with itself, and the pink/gray is spun with two held together as one.
They're nothing fabulous, or even good, really... but it's a start!
