I Think I'm a Spinner



And a closer view


In the top photo, the skein on the right is the first one you saw last week. Here's two more, getting thinner and more consistent. I had a few mishaps plying but it's all part of the learning process.

And, today I learned a trick about getting successful results taking pictures of dark yarns. I found the +/- light control on my camera. Eureka! No more overexposed dark yarn. YAY.

The Little Emperor is beckoning.

Looking good! I hope that all your spinning is not going to stall your knitting too much!

Did you ever spin with a drop spindle? You are truly inspiring me to throw caution into the wind and just go buy a wheel--you're a natural!!!

Lovely colors- it's gorgeous! What kind of roving(s) did you use?

You "think" you're a spinner?
You ARE a spinner! It looks great!

That yarn looks great!! And thanks for the camera hint. Mine has so many settings I am trying to figure out so I don't have to take all photos outside!
