I am so new to this spinning thing and I must admit that I have gotten a bit frustrated at times.
But so far, I've found that I have taken a wrong approach about learning to do this right. First of all, I was looking for sub-standard roving to practice with. I found out now, that that is a big mistake!
I've been struggling to spin a consistent yarn with some really bad roving. This morning I bit the bullet and told myself to try the super soft alpaca. OMG ~ What a difference!
I'm not spinning a perfect yarn yet, but boy-oh-boy... this is so much easier to work with!
Take a peek at what I've spun this morning:
So now it is starting to make sense to me and I'm getting into the groove and rhythym.
My first advise to a new spinner - don't work with low grade roving... it will only mess you up!
Happy Knitting! (or spinning!)
