Celebrating with a Beer!!

Check THIS out..................




I know, it still looks like crap BUT I was actually able to **finally** get the fiber to feed onto the bobbin consistently (thanks Katey for the tips)! This is my second "yarn" but the first time I felt that it actually went even sort of as planned. I'm SO excited - I didn't even cry once! Maybe a few unsightly words here and there but that is simply to be expected, don't you think? I know it does not seem like a big deal but it feels like it is. So, therefore, I'm treating myself to a beer! Who wants to join me????


And here is the next attempt....................



It's gettin better, eh? OK - enough spinning for tonight - off to drink my beer(s)!

Way to go! I say any excuse for beer is good tho tequila is my liquor of choice.And spinning would surely make me need lots of it.

Your spinning is beautiful and you will find that ANY handspun yarn will knit up into something charming, even the first attempts. Some day, you will get so good at making "good" yarn that you will wish you could go back and do it like you started! I speak from experience!

Your spinning looks great! You will get better and better everytime you sit down to the wheel. Trust me, I've been there.
