Oh Dear

As I said, my dear friend Nancy has opened a door to a new craft.
Well, I thought I'll just try it again.
I bought a drop spindle and some wool web when I was pregnant with the Elder Hug-a-Bug, that's 6 years ago, and never had much luck with it.
The lady I bought it from was really good at spinning, and she showed how she did it and I just kept getting farther and farther away from the spindle, and the yarn was everywhere and I hated doing it.
So N told me to go on YouTube and look up videos of people spinning and I did and this is what I did when I should have been sleeping last night.

I could see last night that the yarn was becoming less consistent and so I stopped, but I could get hooked on this, I tell you what.

Time to take the kids to school,
Hope you had a terrific Mother's Day!
Jess
