I've decided I want to try my hand at spinning. Some of my friends are spinners, and they were talking about how much they enjoy it. I figured that since I love knitting, I might also love spinning.
So I'm making myself a drop-spindle. I made the whorl out of polymer clay; it's really pretty. I mixed together burgundy, pink and white clay to make it look marbley. I hope once I put it together and get some roving, I can make it work. I think it could be a lot of fun. I've just finished baking the clay whorl, and it's cooling. I'll put it together with the dowel this evening. Tomorrow I'll go to Hobby Lobby and get some wool roving, if they still have it. I know I've seen some there before.
Wish me luck!
