    Dance Spinning!

    Advertisements
    And no, I'm not talking about working out! LOL.

    So glad the spring is finally coming. I got to hook up with my neighbor who has been spinning yarn for 7 years now. And she's going to teach me for free! PLUS she is loaning me one of her spinning wheels.



    I got to card some fiber in crazy colors(basically blending different fibers to create art yarn) and that was so cool. I can't wait to start experimenting with dying the fiber as well. There are many methods including using Kool Aid and plants.

    I have to say the first night I tried I was cussing up a storm at the thing. It's a lot harder than it looks!! But after two more days of practice I have say I'm getting better. And I love everything about it. It is so cool to start from the raw fiber then to make a wearable product with it! I am in love.

    Here is a pic of my very first time spinning on the wheel by myself. And this is the art yarn I made on the carder.

    OOOOO Chaleigh! Do me a favor and ask her if come spring she'd be willing to trade fiber with me!

    I would love to learn how to spin all different kinds of wool. Yesterday I was spinning Shetland Cow wool. It's kind of coarse but pretty.
