So yesterday morning I woke up and had to urge to start spinning!!! For a week or so I have been looking at all your awesome yarns and such. So I picked my Butt up and went to the hardware store and purchased some things to make a spindle and to the local craft store to just get some 100% Carded Wool (Used mainly for felting but it worked well.) And here I am with two little balls of yarn. And super super happy!!!! I really want to start processing my out fibers now! Anyway on to the pictures:

Here is my Top Whorl

My bottom Whorl

My very first spinning's!!!!!!!

And again!

My second one!

And again!!!

Now here is a good question. How do you go about asking some one for their shearings?!? I would love to get into all of this. And I heard you can spin dog hair? My mom has a poodle and mentioned to me it would be funny to make yarn out of his fur.

Great colours. Great first try - not too loose, no too tight - just right. Super.

Congratulations! Cheesy

Those yarns look really nice, fun colour combinations - and the spindles look good, too! Which one do you like best, the top or the bottom whorl? I've only tried a bottom whorl myself.

Thank you both!!  Grin So far I've only worked on the top whorl. The circles slide off for easy yarn removal and i think they are both too lite so I had to put both circles on one. Top whorl is pretty easy. I can spin it by rolling it on my leg better. Not I just need to get more roving. I am totally getting addicted to it!!

I've heard of people spinning dog hair as well. And my boyfriend is after me to make "cat wool." I told him I'd do it, as long as he wears what I make out of it!
