the pay-off

Last night, my spinning class met for the second and final session. We learned plying, and: wow. It makes such a difference! That crazy and ugly turnip of yarn has turned into a little skein of yarn.

It's pretty bulky, and still needs a bath to "set the twist" - or something like that.  But it's yarn!  And it's inspired me to keep the drop spindle out, at the very least.  So fun.

Ok, this is funny. When you said you were going to spinning class - I thought you were going to the gym. :)
But that's some very pretty yarn.

That's the best drop spindle yarn for a newbie that I've ever seen. Bravo!! You most definitely need to start saving for a wheel. ;-)
