the fiber addiction deepens

So, while I was out and about today getting some yarn for upcoming projects I also bought this:


Yes, I am going to try my hand at spinning. We'll see how this turns out. So far I have sections that resemble bailing twine and others that more closely mimic sewing thread. This should be interesting.

I just recently got a spindle and some roving myself. Watch out, it's addictive!

This last fall I went to an organic farm near Madison, WI which has sheep and goats they use for fiber. We took a day class on carding, roving and spinning. We did hand spinning first which was pretty cool. When I got to the wheel it was a disaster! Good luck and enjoy.
