Twisting

Unable to stand the wait, I unwound my newly spun yarn from the drop spindle onto the legs of a stool.

The yarn was trying so hard to untwist itself and return to its original state and I had to work hard to show it who was boss. There it is before soaking to start the set-the-twist process. (I'm learning stuff.)


There it is again, soaking in warm water.

Hanging from a doorknob in all its glorious imperfection.

Weighted by my keys.

Dry and wound into a ball-ish type bundle of joy. And I'm already spinning more!



I'm so proud!

The boy said, "Um . . . you really didn't make much. Whaddayagonna do with it?"

Maybe I'll use this yarn to stitch his lips together.

Your newly spun yarn looks terrific. I like the color too. Spinning scares me, so I am not going to try it . . . no, no, no.
