A new project!
This drop spindle and wool came to me in the mail from Lonna at Apple Jack Creek, who was incredibly patient and helpful to this fiber newbie. I received a gift certificate through The Homesteader's Way in exchange for sharing my thoughts on buying homegrown and handmade and knew immediately that I wanted to spend it on this. How wonderful is it to make something from wool to finished project? I've been reading up on the spinning process and am learning a whole new set of vocabulary: Leader! Twist! Drafting! Whorl! Slubs!
I'll keep you posted on the progress.
