This is my 5th ever yarn, spun on a drop spindle. It is for my Granny for Christmas, it took me quite a few hours, but I feel it is worth it!

It has little plastic pearls spun through it too, and bits of angelina fibre.


I painted her a label to go on it too. Smiley

This might seem out of the blue, but how did your wrap your yarn?
Ie, how do you make a lovely small ball like that?
I'm guessing you don't have a ball winder

Aww thank you so much everyone, I totally forgot I had posted this til now. Smiley

I can't remember exactly how I wrapped it, I think I kinda twisted it once and pulled the two ends together, if that makes any sense. Sorry!

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

Tongue Nope not everything, I just like to experiment!

My Granny did love it, she seemed quite shocked that I had actually made it. I don't think she has made anything with it yet though. Smiley
