I am learning to spin! I’m on a course in an association of crafts (kind of difficult to explain in english…). There I am learning to spin on a drop spindle (that was last week) and next to times we will learn to spin on a spinning wheel.
The result of the first lession is this:
Hanspun and plied!
Wool from Þingborg.
First, I spun the dark wool. It was uneven and “a bit” twisty at times but hey, It was the second time I’ve ever touched a drop spindle ;) Then I spun the light grey-ish thread and then I plied these to together and guess what! It didn’t turn out so bad! Most of the twist justed dissapeared. I might just knit something out of it… :Þ
On the needles I have green/blue Blaka from the booklet Einband:
Pattern: Blaka by Védís Jónsdóttir
