I started spinning about six months ago. And now I have to blog about it - typical.
I followed what is probably the usual route - I started with the homemade CD spindle (more on that later), learned to spin a fine single, and learned to ply reasonable two-ply.
Of course, two-ply yarn is most suitable to knitting, and that's not terribly atractive to me - oh, I knit... I'm just kind of over it. So now I'm spinning spools of singles to stockpile against the day I get my Kromski Harp loom. Soon, I swear.
Anyway, I've been buying raw fiber (wool, alpaca, etc) on ebay and playing with dyes on the stove. I'll be blogging that very shortly.
