So, yesterday I got materials to make a spindle. And so I did. Now, of course, if you're gonna have a spindle, you ought to learn to spin. So I did. Now, the book I got at the library stunk, so I looked a bit on the internet and taught myself from that. It's made from lionbrand homespun. I have a ton left over from an old halloween costume and so i took out the threads that held it together (however poorly) and spun it. It was kinda irritating me when kit wasn't plied, so I did. I love the color, it's kinda strawberry's and cream colored. It's soft too! It's even, thanks to the fact that I used some yarn that was already even...

This was the very first yarn I was happy with.

This is some more I spun while watching Doctor Who. (With Tom Baker Shocked)
