finished my yarn!! (okay so it needs to be set but, its spun..)   A simple squishy single spun up by my son and I.  Yup I had my 4 year old help me with it.  Grin   He spun the spindle and I let the twist flow into the fiber.   Nothing like the yarns I've seen being sent... All crazy and wonderfully beautiful and artsy...  but, it is spinning at its simplest form. And that is something that needs to be shown too.  So excited to send it off!  Cheesy

Here's an update on the up-coming show!

The packages coming in


recording everyone's names...


Starting to wind on everyone's yarn into a giant skein




It's coming together!


But there are a few hitches...
the skein keeps "growing" as the tension changes.
So poor Lexi has had to re-wind this huge skein

Here are the YouTube videos of the winding process.
So much beautiful handspun!
