Hand Spindle Greens

Last night I finished up some green/brown merino-silk by drop spindle. Taking a break from the new wheel and doing something I know how to do! Posted by Picasa

I remember when you were getting so frustrated at the drop spinlde, it is good to see you saying that you know how to do it. Just think in a few short months you will be saying that about your spinning wheel as well!!

oo, that's pretty. Where did you get the fiber?

As for being frustrated with the learning process - take it slow.

15 minutes at a time to get used to making the wheel go in the right direction all the time.

Then get the tension dialed in to not pull the fiber out of your hand while the twist is being added.
