Thick 'n Thin
Sometime in the last week I got it in my head that I needed to try the ancient art of spinning with a drop spindle. So my friend Deirdre from stitch n' bitch offered to bring her's along with some roving to the meeting this week and she even let me take it all home! I explained to her that I was pretty sure I needed to be in the frustration of my own living room to truly give the spindle a whorl. After thinking about spinning all day at work I came home and tried it again. The result isn't very pretty, I'll be the first to admit, but practice practice practice. With all this practicing, I hope I have time to knit!
