So, I’ve made my first foray into the fabulous fiberous world of spinning! Of course, I still haven’t figured out how to keep the whole thing from unspinning when I’m tired of it, so I just knit right off of the spindle.

Ok, so from some online searching, I’ve realized that you are supposed to wash your yarn after you spin it to set the twist… yeah, but I’m not that patient today. The above swatch (taken with my compy camera… still haven’t replaced my sunken one) was the second one I made. Thinner yarn, mostly. But see how the right hand side is loose? Thats cause I don’t know how to make the end of my yarn all nice and tightly twisted. Still… not too bad for my first try, I think.

Any tips are more than welcome, if anyone reading this knows how to spin…
