It's been a bit warm to spin with my drop spindle over the last few months..but that doesn't mean I've forgotten about it.
I'd just like to show you my progress.
Above, is my first completed attempt...hmm....
Above, is the next attempt that was completed, you can see I'm having trouble with my plying....
(anybody got suggestions of where I'm going wrong?)
The latest attempts of spinning are much neater and consistant, I'll have to wait and see what it looks like when plyed etc..
I've read books, watched videos and practiced and I'm hoping if anybody has any suggestions about plying please leave me a comment.
How do you ply?
Right, on to some knittery

The stitch was easy and, I think is very effective. It produced a lovely dense, woven feel.

the wonderful Viajante....
I'm just about to start my third (and last)100gram ball of Regia Lace.
It's so long and very difficult to photograph.
I'm enjoying this easy knit and am looking forward to wearing it soon (hopefully!!)
Hope you've enjoyed this catch-up
Have you any words of wisdom about drop spindle spinning?
Have you got any projects tucked away that you can't face??
Tell me, tell me!!
