Wow! On Saturday I went to Uncommon Threads in Palm Harbor, FL for my first handspinning lesson. Allison Klay was my instructor. I used a drop spindle and a wheel. It was great.
I bought a top whorl spindle and some roving. Part of it was morino and part of it was liecester.
I have to wait 3 weeks for my next lesson. Wah!
I have to practice, practice, practice till I go back. Allison said that I will learn to ply and may get to try some of the more luscious fibers - alpaca or silk or llama.
Check back for more.
