So I got my Annie May drop spindle a few days ago from , and I am completely in love.

Before:


After!:



It's thin and not-so-thin, mostly thin.  It looks a little felted, but I don't really mind at all.  Live and learn!  I like how it came out, considering I wasn't expecting it to be that good on my first try.  I did so much research on using the drop spindle that by the time I actually received it I just picked it up and spun away.  Addiction.  I'd better get more roving before I run out of this stuff (won't take long), or I might have withdrawals.

Thanks so much for looking!  Any comments/tips would be appreciated!!

That looks awesome..far better than my first attempt!  And I love the color.  Fiber addictions are so prevalent...it's a good thing they're useful.

Looks great!  I bought my first spindles from Annie May's, and ended up completely, insanely addicted to it.  Watch out!
