I have always wanted to spin my own yarn. I was taught to knit by my Korean great grandmother when I was five, on chopsticks, and fell in love with it. As with the seasons, I also wax and wan on projects, such as right now, in lovely Vermont, with the severe thunderstorms and heavy humidity...really, who wants to knit?! I have two antique spinning wheels, but I first want to learn the drop spindle technique. Does anyone have suggestions on to what materials I will need? I have plenty of roving, but that's about it. Any books better than the other? My hands are just itching to try and learn this!!! Also, how hard is it to make drop spindles? I love woodworking and have a lathe, so there's another idea...
I can't wait to show you all my first completed project, of course with lots of pictures!
