I've been teaching myself how to spin on a drop spindle since Crimbo, and have just these last couple of months started getting finished pieces that look any good!
This one is my latest - 100% merino spun and 2-ply to worsted weight.
This is also merino, plied with silk thread, spun to fingering.
A much earlier one, also merino plied with silk threat, spun to a bulky. It's an earlier one - took me a while to get the hang of spinning lighter weights!
I recently discovered that I hate trying to spin icelandic yarn. I now have 300g of gorgeous white icelandic fibre that is basically going to be used as doll stuffing, it's so frustrating to spin with.
Anyone else spin? Any tips for working with Icelandic?
