PROGRESS? not!

To start my adventure into spinning, I got this stuff from Starlyn ...

After a bit of struggle and MANY YouTube videos later ... I actually got something on the spindle. (not the green yarn, the gray stuff)


Here is it off the spindle and wound around the seat of my high chair.  It's a beautiful high chair, a family heirloom. I could go on and on about the high chair - it's much nicer than the yarn I spun.

BUT - I did get yarn spun!

For a very brief minute, I thought I'd switch to the "good stuff".


Not so pretty ...

But - I'm not giving up. I did manage to spin all the gray and next I'm going to do the brown. Then - I have to ply. OK - just typing that made me sweat. PLY ... I have to watch more videos.

Oh Mary, you must stop tempting me with these posts about spinning! I do not need another fiber hobby, but it looks like so much fun and how neat would it be to knit something with yarn that you have spun yourself???
