It's true, I've been knitting a lot lately, but I haven't completely neglected actual spinning on the spindle. In fact, the other day I plied my first yarn!
The darker stuff is mine - the white stuff is the sample made by the extremely nice woman who sold me the spindle. I keep it there to remind me how spun yarn is supposed to look. I have a long way to go.
Still, I do wind yarn nicely on the spindle, don't you think?
And I'm also pretty good at yarn art:
I call this one 'yarnfish.'
