New Year

It's been a while. Louise was disassembled, then put back together with new parts, then had to wait for a new copy of Windows to show up...anyway, she's working now (I think), but the post I had waiting all about my knitting resolutions for the year seems way too ambitious now. One thing at a time.

Here's the current thing:

drop spindle

That there is my very first attempt at handspun yarn. I'm taking a four-week class offered here in town.

And here it is, about 30 yards all plied and skeined (is that a verb?):

handspun skein

Not very soft, and not very pretty, but am I ever hooked.

  1. I haven't tried spinning yet. It looks like a good first attempt. You'll be a pro in no time!
