I am still working on my latest shawl with the Viking yarn. I guess I am a little frustrated that I can't seem to get my rows perfectly straight. I just need to bite the bullet and finish. I think I might do fringe on this one. The yarn is beautiful.
All this work with yarn has made decide to try spinning. Actually I am learning spindling. It just seems like the best way to learn to make yarn first. It seems like if I can learn to easily make yarn with a spindle then I can do it with a wheel. Plus spindles are much cheaper than spinning wheels.
I ordered a spindle online.. but asked my husband to help me find some old tinker toys. It seems like you could make a cool spindle out of those. Also online there are instructions for a yarn swift out of tinker toys... how cool.
I am using the craftsy course to learn to spindle. They had a great deal going on when I signed up. So far I love the online course. I also have an instructor helping me a little too. The craftsy course she teaches you how to make a niddy noddy out of PVC pipe and a lazy kate out of a box. I love the PVC pipe niddy noddy.
