Spin Pic

Here is a picture of my first spinning. My friend gave me some Corriedale to practice on with first. I like how it spins, but I think the fiber would benefit from a little carding or combing. The fibers are not all lined up well and sometimes that leads to small fluffy bits in my spinning...or maybe it is because I am a TOTAL novice and don't know what I am doing! But generally speaking, I am happy with my singles.

Next thing to try: plying!

The singles looks great. The fluffy is what gives it the hand-spun character :D I always say if you want smooth perfect yarn--buy commercial LOL Happy spinning!
