Next month I plan to attend a fiber festival and decided it would behoove me to make use of the learn-to-spin kit before going. Then I will have an excuse to buy some of that luscious roving that I have so far been able to resist, heh, heh.
Well, to make a long story short, I am not much of a spinner. All I could think while toiling away at my drop spindle was, That is one ugly yarn!
It's not the yarn's fault. Have you ever knit with thick-and-thin yarn? Now I know where they get it: from beginning spinners who can't draft evenly.
After a while, I got the bright idea that maybe I should pre-draft all the roving.
It looked like Fern gakked up the world's biggest hair ball. Even she was freaked out when she saw it.
I keep saying to myself, Just accept the fact that some that some roving will have to be sacrificed while you struggle with this. Please don't tattle on me to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Wool, though.
