Spinning anyone?

It's been a long while since I spin anything. Here's the fiber I predrafted a few days ago. It's my own handdyed corriedale. Even though the fiber is very easy to open and I really didn't need to predraft it, I like to do it anyway because I am spoiled from spinning the batts.


  1. Oooh That fibre looks yummy. Stunning colours, can't wait to see the spun yarn. Don't forget to post pictures when it's done :D

  2. very pretty! I just caught the spinning bug and I think it's going to be around for a while! I just started 3 weeks ago. I have been using a drop spindle and have actually gotten pretty good with it already. No more parking and drafting and I'm not ending up with funky art yarn. Yah!

    Yesterday I built myself a kick spindle and today I figured out how to make bobbin cores for the kick spindle so I can take them off and start spinning right away! What a fun adventure!! Are you in Portland or Vancouver? I'm in the Couve--Life long resident. :)

  3. Thank you all. I finished my spinning on this one but I haven't take picture. I will post it soon.
