For christmas my mamma bought me a drop spindle kit from Hilltop Cloudand to be honest its sat there since then. Unused and unloved. Its not that I didn’t want to have a go but fitting it in with all the sock knitting has been tricky!
However a couple of weeks ago I thought I’d better have a go……my first attempt was, quite frankly, an insult to sheep around the globe and I would like to send a personal apology to the sheep that gave up its fleece to be turned into this:
Now, it’s not perfect but not bad for a second attempt! The pink and blue yarns were both samples purchased through The Fibre Holics. They do fab bags of fibre and samples from loads of fab dyers – which is perfect for a beginner spinner like me, I’m still trying to work out which fibres I like spinning with.
Im sure this is going to be the catalyst for a whole new type of stash!! Need to try and get a bit better, Id love to be able to knit a pair of handspun, handknit socks!
Thanks for visiting me :)
Lots of love
