Thanks Pia_77 Smiley

I'm relatively new to spinning but it's fun playing with the drop spindle!!  atsuko makes wonderful drop spindles (she's the one that got me started on spinning with a drop spindle) Grin   

I keep looking at that spindle and thinking about it.
I just know that I won't like the first 100+ batches I spin because it will be inconsistent and bulky  Sad  I want it perfect the first time!  LOL it sucks to be a virgo.

Slubs and inconsistencies in yarn = designer handspun yarn *grin*

Why spin when you can felt!  Cheesy haha.

Especially love the green roving, l2e!

A couple of scarves will be added to my shop tomorrow. I tested one with the alter ego dyes, it was supposed to be orange rayon on a turquoise silk. The silk turned turquoise, but the rayon went to a kind of purple - how opposite of orange can you get? The dyes are a big 'aged' shall we say, so maybe the orange shifted and then the blue tinted it purple. Anyway, now I need to try out my other colors and see what they do.

Some long-sleeved baby rompers came in my order - were there any preferred themes with these?

I'm open again, having spent some points. I have also had a glimpse of the future if I am a bad girl. Have you ever worried that if you are bad and go to hell, there will be no crafting? There will, but it will be with 'special' fabrics. You, know the ones that slip and slide all over the place, like brocade. I was very glad to post off one particular package today.

Heh...why choose when you can do both?  Grin

Yikes!!  Working with slippery fabrics is a nightmare Tongue  Same goes for fun fur and velvet (i.e. anything that sheds) Tongue  I'm in awe of folks who take on these sort of fabrics Tongue
