A new Twist

I recently had the pleasure of learning to make my own fiber--Janet Yinger is a wonderful instructor. Tami gifted me this top whirl spindle, Laura gave me the remainder of the tools need to make my yarn. I now have enough fiber made to start a pair of fingerless gloves. Photos of those to follow soon.
The weather has been nice enough here in BV to take our 3:00 o'clock spinning break out in the yard. I aspire to make my fiber look like Tami's some day. We have some new roving in our spinning room to drool over. What color should I choose, I am becoming very fond of purple. Two years ago I told my knitting friends I will never wear purple. Be careful what you say!! Until next time.

I was wondering when you were going to post about this. I can't wait to see your fingerless gloves!

I am also really loving the composition on your top picture.
