I posted once before about my frustration... my first spinning attempt wasn't as I thought it should be Wink

I decided to let my little 3 year old help me by dyeing roving with wiltons. she picked the colors, helped me paint and squirt and roll the roving into saran wrap. In return for her wonderful favor, I spun it *just for her* and made her a hat!!!

She says it's birdiful!! That makes it so worth the frustrations!! And I absolutely had a blast watching it come out. This is my first time with color, and my first time plying. I'm so hooked. now I wish I had more energy to do more... I am way pregnant and tired and am feeling very lazy lately!
