My First Fat Spin

So I got my spindle in the mail yesterday! WOO HOO. It's beautiful, the roving is beautiful, and it came quickly. So again, A++++ to Anniemay123 from ebay. She's the one! Oh yeah, and the wool is SOOOO soft! I can't wait to buy more from her. She's got great colors!

Anyway, here is my first spin attempt

Check out that SUPER chunky yarn. No, I wasn't trying to make it look that thick. And no, I do not like it. At all. But I'm proud that I attempted it. And I'll continue to post my progress. I am waiting to hear back from Kim from KnitNSpin Yahoo group. Check us out. We just started this past week, and are only 5 members strong, but I know that we'll grow. There are several other spinning groups on yahoo. But they all had like 1000+ members. It was kim's idea to start a group where we could talk about BOTH Knitting & Spinning without feeling like we were going off topic and bugging people. So even if you don't spin or knit we're a couple of good helpers and will help to answer any questions you might have about either.

Okay, that's all from here, hope everyone is having a great week. Until next time...
Knit some.

    Your first spinning looks pretty good, although top (what you have) is really much harder to spin than roving. Do you have any roving? If you don't, I can send you some from a big bag a friend gave me. It's a good beginner fleece.
