Domestic Skills

So to further my decent into fiber related fun and frolic, my friend yarnchef let me borrow a drop spindle and taught me some spinning basics. I should in fact say she provided a new form of fiber narcotics to a junky, but borrow works just as well. Armed with some beautifully dyed hanks of fleece, I spun. I spun and I spun and got covered with little bits of wool until I came up with this....

I made yarn! Its single ply and kind of lumpy... but darn it, its yarn. Can you tell I'm just a bit proud of myself at this moment? Next, convincing my dad to make a few of these bad boys!
