I never, ever thought that I would get into spinning my own yarn but I have and I love it! I bought a drop spindle and hot pink merino roving (just starting to get the lingo down) from yarntospin.etsy.com and she had wonderful detailed instructions on how to spin your own yarn. It took me about 6 hours to spin the yarn because I was doing a little at a time plus I did run into a couple of snags from my own inexperience and needed to walk away. Well we it was all done and I washed, blocked and twisted the yarn I came out so cute. When I bought the kit, I told myself that I would make myself something out of the yarn (it is something I don't normally do) and I made myself a neckwarmer! I have bought more roving from yarn2spin.etsy.com and I can't wait for it to come in so I can spin more yarn and make more adorable items!
