Spinning: 30 Mehefin / June 2010

Yesterday, I took possession of a box of goodies from Shiela's shop, including some carders, power scour and toolkit for my wheel. I'd also bought The Ashford Book of Hand Spinning by Jo Reeve, and it's a revelation. I've learnt how to combat twist (tread more slowly), how to regulate my drafting so that it's more even, and the different kinds of yarns that be spun. I couldn't wait to delve back in, so I headed for my stash of roving, and this is the result. You can see a teensy bit of overtwist there, but that's because I'd let go of the yarn to take the photo! I'm delighted that it's coming together so nicely, and I'm feeling more confident about joining the Ceredigion Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers next week.
