My First and Second Handspun

I’ve been working through Craftsy’s Spindling:  From Fluff to Stuff  class.  It’s interesting!  I’ve been wanting to spin my own yarn for a while now, and a drop spindle seemed like a good place to start, as is this class.  After a few attempts, I got this tangled mess in Exhibit A, my first handspun.

Exhibit A

 It looks bad, but a product from a skill usually doesn’t the first time around, right?  It looks yucky. I put my spindle down and picked it up again a day later, and got a little better, as shown in Exhibit B, my second handspun.

Exhibit B

My yarn is a little more even this time.  It’s encouraging to improve through practice, which is what drop spindling is a lot about.  I will keep on going through the class and practicing.

  1. I practiced again last night, and it went a little better. I think I'll just try for about 15 min a day so I don't get overwhelmed and frustrated. There are a lot of free resources for spindling out there. I encourage you to give it another try. 🙂
