...as my mum says when progress is being made - usually related to tidying!
Last night I managed to turn some of this Mixed Shetland from Wingham Wool day:
which is the first time I've felt a bit of pride in my spinning. I can see an improvement - still not perfect, but I'm not sure I'm aiming for perfection - I like a bit of imperfection in some areas - it adds - em... character. It was much easier to spin that anything I'd tried before with a longer staple length and I love how the natural colours entwine together to make an interesting single. (I'm still not au fait with all the correct spinning terminology, so please bear with me!) I also love how the top photo looks a bit like a massive lock of hair - my father-in-law (Granda Gerry) who's a wigmaker by profession - might be able to rustle up something attractive from it!
