Look what I made

My first wheel-spun, wheel-plied yarn:

And then, after three lessons, I had to buy a wheel. I chose an Ashford Kiwi 2. I also chose to assemble it myself, thinking we would get to know each other better that way.

In the process, I did learn a thing or two about the Kiwi. But really, the main thing was to start spinning.

I already had accumulated a fair amount of roving. The original intent was to spin it using a spindle. And I did that, for a while. But after spinning, spindling feels like something that requires three hands.

The spindles will now be relegated to decor - I'm hooked on spinning!
