It's Official.......

It's official I can spin. I have just just got back from my time learning to spin. The ladies in the spinning group were wonderful, they have shown me how to card and comb the wool ready for spinning. Then the exciting bit actually spinning, I went from this to

.....My first skein of wool, plyed too. I feel quite chuffed that I could actually do it.
The ladies gave me confidence and were very complimentary on the finished product. I hope it was not beginners luck. I have also come home with a bag of fleece, to practice with before the next meeting. I am off the the Royal Highland Show with the spinners on friday, this will be my first visit to the show, looking forward to it. Will let you know how it goes.
