Learning to Spin

I am learning to spin! Finally, after years of wanting to and with fits and starts, I realized that I needed to take a class in order to really learn how to spin. Now I am a few weeks in and it is going well. My first attempts (above in white) are very rustic but my later attempts (the brown wool on the spindle) are better. The latest yarn is even spun from wool I picked and carded myself: some beautiful Romney from a small town in Utah called Cornish. In the coming weeks, I will get to learn on a spinning wheel and then maybe my spinning wheel that I received as a birthday present from my parents 25 years ago will actually get some use.
