Being my first time to attempt spinning. l was given this wool type fiber to practice on. Was a tad course and felt nothing like wool to me... the novice.
After visiting with friends in Melbourne on a recent trip, thought l would like to knit a cardigan/jacket, this made me think a little more about types of wool ...then l had a brain wave, spin my own. ( Hubby encouragement all the way).
Then after visiting the Spinners and Weavers demonstration together at the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, decided to give the whole idea a chance. So off l went on Thursday last and took my very first lesson. Found it to be a very relaxing day and after the usual introductions went to work with many helpful hints and encouragement managed to spin this wool....into a ball of wool....sort of. Would be a lot cheaper, quicker to purchase the wool from the store, but not as much fun. This is going to be exciting.... wish me luck. So much more research is needed.
