Look what I am doing!!! Spinning my own yarn. This is my second try on my homemade spindle which doesn't work really well at first but after it got some weight on it from the wrapped yarn it behaved much better some of the time...= ) A big thankyou to Marlene for all the help and advice she is giving me! The batt-like stuff you see here is called roving and is sheep's wool that has been cleaned and carded. More than that I'm not sure of but its fun to have spun this!! Now to get some more roving. I've found that there is a lady near me that spins so I'm going see if I can buy some from her. In case you wondered...I saw this demonstrated on Do-It-Yourself tv show and immediately knew I wanted to try this!
